Evo targeted again, this time by a German?

Uh oh. I’m not liking the look of these. Those are some seriously narrrrrsty weapons, and they come from the home of a seriously sinister man:

Bolivian police detained a German citizen on Thursday after finding large-calibre weapons and military ammunition in his home in the eastern region of Santa Cruz, according to authorities.

At a press conference, Government minister Sacha Llorenti revealed that the detainee has been identified as Dirk Smith, wanted on fraud charges in Germany, which had been seeking his extradition from Bolivia for years.

“We have contacted the German embassy for more information and to confirm whether the extradition request is still in effect. He also has an expired residency permit”, said Llorenti.

Police colonel Miguel Gonzales, director of the Special Force Against Narcotrafficking (FELCC) in Santa Cruz, stated that a team entered Smith’s home and found the weapons and ammunition.

[…]

Local media report that the police found seven military weapons, two pistols, and more than 300 rounds of ammunition.

Minister Llorenti stated that the accused is linked to a criminal gang headed by an ex-policeman, which assaulted an armored truck in 2001, killing two police officers.

Translation mine.

Smith, BTW, is definitely not a German name. Could be a pseudonym for “Schmidt”, though–and I’m gathering that this dude would probably be travelling under a number of fake IDs, seeing as he’s a fugitive and all.

I wonder if he’s just a common crook, or if he had ambitions to be the next Eduardo Rózsa Flores. With weapons like those, he could go either way, couldn’t he?

    Maybe. But he could just be your basic slime ball Santa Cruz unfortunately attracts.

  2. Probably…and by the sounds of things, he was just that.
    Christ, what is it with Santa Cruz? Che tried to spark his pan-South-American revolution there, too, and look what that got him. Knowing what I know now, it’s the last place I’d want to go if I had HIS purposes in mind. Especially since Bolivia had tried to have a revolution just fifteen years earlier, and failed. And he was THERE during that!

    Or he could be another of those Special Ops agents that have fanned out in Latin America to stir things up. You know that they would have a dozen or more identities, all of them conveniently deniable by the State Department and The Pentagon. Evo’s guys better stay on their toes.
