In the commune of Talcahuano, Bío Bío region, he was arrested this Monday a Mapuche community member accused of shooting against police officers during the demonstrations on the anniversary of the death of Camilo Catrillanca.

Is about Quelentaro Anibal Figueroa Queipul, residing in the Temucuicui community, who is charged with the crimes of attempted homicide against a policeman, illegal possession of a firearm and unjustified shooting.

All those are crimes that Figueroa Queipul would have committed last Saturday, in the context of a march that took place at the access to Collico in the commune of Ercilla, in the region of La Araucanía, for the two years of the murder of Catrillanca.

The High Complexity Prosecutor’s Office in La Araucanía coordinated the proceedings with the Anti-Narcotics Brigade and Against Organized Crime (Brianco) of the PDI in Angol, who allowed the arrest of the community member while he was healing some wounds in the port district of Bío Bío.

On Saturday the accused was recorded by a Carabineros drone and later identified.

Based on the background available to the Public ministry, this Tuesday Quelentaro Figueroa will be formalized first thing in the morning in the Court of Guarantee of Collipulli.

At the hearing, as he learned Radio Bío Bío, an investigation for the crime of drug trafficking will also be formalized.
