At the request of the Office of the Attorney General, a judge from Barranquilla issued a preventive measure with imprisonment for Leandro Jhonatan Lara, alias ‘Barbas’ or ‘Leandro’, alleged intellectual author of the murder of Joaquín Trujillo García, social leader in Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta who was fatally shot last May.

‘Barbas’, was apparently hiding 900 kilometers away from the crime scene in the municipality of Melgar (Tolima) where members of the Technical Investigative Corps CTI and Guala (Army) arrived in order to conduct the arrest.
