On 6 October, María de la Cruz Dorantes Zamora, member of the Council of Ejidos and Communities Opposed to the La Parota Dam (CECOP), was arrested on the charge of qualified robbery following the denunciation submitted by Humberto Marín Molina, owner of the gravel-company Kimbar. Marín Molina alleges that he lost 6 million pesos because of Dorantes Zamora, who was arrested while returning from chemotherapy for the cancer she has. She denies the accusations against her and assures that she was visiting different communities on the days during which the robbery is supposed to have taken place.
The charge of qualified robbery is also one of the five charges presented against CECOP spokesperson Marco Antonio Suástegui Muñoz, who was arrested in June and is currently being held in Tepic federal prison in Nayarit state.
