In a daring criminal attack, a criminal gang disguised in fake Enel uniforms carried out a robbery and attempted another in two different locations in Bogotá. The first incident occurred in the Simón Bolívar neighborhood of Barrios Unidos, near the Military School. Eight criminals, dressed in blue Enel uniforms, arrived in a Carry vehicle and pretended to be legitimate employees of the company.

Armed and disguised, the criminals violently entered the offices, subduing and gagging the employees present. According to a witness, “they arrived as Enel contractors, claiming to be delivering equipment for testing. It seemed normal at first, but they were carrying tools for tying and strapping.” Using a metal bar, they destroyed doors and walls in search of the company’s safe. After more than twelve minutes of operation, they achieved their objective, taking cash and computers.

The owner of the affected company described the multimillion-dollar losses and the impact of the robbery, which is now under investigation by the authorities.

This incident was not the only one. The same gang attempted another robbery in a house in Bosa, also looking for a safe. However, the rapid police intervention thwarted their plans and six of the criminals were captured. The detainees are currently in custody at the Kennedy URI and will face charges for these audacious criminal acts.

The National Police are continuing to investigate to determine the full extent of the damage and recover the stolen items.
