Three men were ar­rested Tues­day morn­ing in western Mex­i­cali while cruis­ing on a ve­hi­cle re­ported stolen and in pos­ses­sion of a gun and drugs, said the Mu­nic­i­pal Pub­lic Safety Depart­ment.’

Au­thor­i­ties said the sus­pects have been iden­ti­fied as Roberto “Doe,” 22, Víc­tor Ramón “Doe,” 26 and Misael “Doe,” 23.

The sus­pects were ob­served by po­lice of­fi­cers at Tu­lancingo Street and Ayutla Street at Colo­nia Cen­tinela, close to Mount Sig­nal, on a white 2017 Mit­subishi Mi­rage.

The ve­hi­cle was caught driv­ing over the speed limit, so agents stopped the driver.

One of the pas­sen­gers had a gun on the waist, so of­fi­cers asked oc­cu­pants to de­scend.

The gun was a 9 mil­lime­ter firearm. The po­lice also found two mag­a­zines loaded with 13 car­tridges.

The driver was in pos­ses­sion of enough mar­i­juana to pro­duce 200 cig­a­rettes.

An­other pas­sen­ger was al­legedly in pos­ses­sion of a small bag with metham­phetamine.

Ac­cord­ing to the po­lice the ve­hi­cle was reg­is­tered for Uber ser­vices and was re­ported stolen days ago.

The Mit­subishi driver was left by the Ti­juana High­way at La­guna Sal­ada dur­ing the car­jack­ing, au­thor­i­ties said.
