The National Police uncovered a weapons cache in the town of Palma, near Bogota, which reportedly contained more than 550 pounds of exposives, six grenades, over 49 feet of detonating cord and, the most crucial piece of evidence, maps of three military and police academies.
Colombia’s National Police director, Jose Roberto Leon Riaño, confirmed the amounts of the contraband found during the operation.
“We found a load that contains 250 kilos (550 pounds) of anfo — explosives of high destructive power, 6 grenades, a few maps of the terrorist targets,” said Riano.
Police suspect that Luz Yenny Hernandez, alias “La Caponera,” was responsible for planning the attack. It is alleged that Hernandez had been trying to reestablish FARC’s ’22 Front’ bloc in the central department of Cundinamerica. Hernandez is wanted by police on charges of homicide and treason.
The weapons discovery occurred during ‘Operation Flash’ — an expansive anti-terrorism operation between the National Police and Bogota’s metropolitan police force.
