* “La Patacona” financial leader in the north of Huila.

* “La Paisa” logistics and delivery of pamphlets from the illegal armed group

It should be noted that during the execution of the operation, the seizure of 09 cell phones, 01 laptop, 25 summons pamphlets, peace and safe passages alluding to the criminal structure and 03 extortion payment control books was achieved.

These people moved through Neiva and other areas of the department of Huila such as: Villavieja, Gigante, Garzón and San Agustín, with the purpose of identifying commercial establishments, to whom, through threats, pamphlets and installation of improvised explosive devices, they carried out economic demands.

Thanks to this important articulated work, it was possible to affect the financial arm of this criminal structure, preventing it from carrying out extortion and terrorism actions with economic demands that exceeded 500 million pesos per month.
