Military Arrests Alleged Members of the Shining Path

first_imgBy Dialogo September 11, 2012 A military patrol captured two women, suspected of being members of the Shining Path guerrillas, in a village in the province of Huancayo, in the Peruvian Andes, on September 8, reported the Joint Command of the Armed Forces. The operation, which was carried out in the central town of Ranrapata, Huancayo Province, Junín, produced the “arrest of two alleged terrorists, members of an alleged terrorist women’s detachment, which apparently were responsible for the care for children,” the Military Armed Forces pointed out in a statement. The note indicates that three children were rescued, a ten-month-old, a four-year old and an eight-year-old, which were under the care of the women. Additionally, the patrol seized numerous indoctrination and terrorist propaganda brochures, as well as chargers, solar panels, and backpacks. The arrest of the women occurred two days after a guerrilla attack killed a Military service member in the Kepashiato district, in Cusco region (southeast), when he was on board a Military helicopter. The Shining Path is a Maoist organization that disbanded in the middle of the last decade. Its main leaders, who are currently serving life sentences in prison, began an internal conflict in 1980 which, left some 70,000 dead after two decades of terror, according to the Commission of Truth and Reconciliation. The region of the Peruvian jungle has become a safe haven for remnants of the Shining Path groups.last_img read more

Sunman woman pleads guilty to dealing meth

first_imgVersailles, IN—An accused meth dealer chose to admit in the middle of her jury trial on Wednesday, December 18th. Defendant, Tosha Richardson, 39, of Sunman, pleaded guilty to Dealing in Methamphetamine, a Level 4 Felony. She was immediately remanded to the Ripley County Jail to await sentencing. She faces up to 12 years in prison.Richardson’s charges stemmed from an Indiana State Police investigation in October 2018. During that investigation, ISP troopers located over 4 grams of methamphetamine, a glass-smoking pipe, multiple plastic baggies, and a digital scale.The lead investigator testified that the seized evidence demonstrated an intent to distribute methamphetamine. Richardson admitted that she had purchased the meth from Cincinnati and gave it to at least 3 friends other than herself. Richardson also admitted to troopers during the investigation that she used the digital scale to weigh methamphetamine.The trooper also testified that methamphetamine is commonly dealt with in a manner similar to the evidence discovered. Firearms were discovered at the residence, but May testified that Richardson’s boyfriend claimed ownership of those. Police discovered in Richardson’s purse a small number of prescription pills and a small amount of marijuana. As evidence was unclear that Richardson ever possessed a firearm along with methamphetamine, prosecutors agreed to drop Richardson’s charge regarding firearm possession. Richardson’s boyfriend also claimed ownership of a jar of marijuana, consistent with personal use.Richardson pleaded guilty at her trial after hearing the evidence from just one of the State’s three witnesses. Prosecutors were going to call 2 more witnesses including a lab analyst and another officer to testify, but Richardson’s admission made that unnecessary.last_img read more
