The mayor of Tijuana, Carlos Bustamante Anchondo, was delivered a warning letter from the residents of Valle de Las Palmas during a street opening ceremony Monday. The concerned residents warned that if security was not heightened in the area, that locals would have no choice but to take security into their own hands.

The letter states that the residents have faced daily acts of violence from thugs. It also states that lynching these criminals would not be out of the question if something is not done about the local security issue.

Valle de Las Palmas is situated to the southeast of Tijuana and southwest of Tecate. The two cities recently settled a territory dispute last year over municipality boundaries. The agreement allowed Tijuana to include the majority of Valle de Las Palmas and its ongoing development into its municipality.

Although violent crime in general has dropped in urban Tijuana, bordering areas like Valle de Las Palmas have seen increased crime. Image
