Security officials find tons of mosquito breeding sites close by

Police cars when they die go to a patrol vehicle cemetery in La Uruca.

Security ministry officials said that they have gotten rid of this 15-year-old junk pile in order to eliminate breeding places of the mosquito that carries dengue.

There was about 20 tons of metal, bottles, tires and all kinds of other material for recycling.

Officials will do that and donate the proceeds to several charities, they said.

The minister of Gobernación, Policía y Seguridad Pública, Mario Zamora Cordero, said that the cleanup gave much more room for the Departamento de Mantenimiento Vehicular.

The ministry probably will need it because it has received a number of patrol cars from China which are notoriously difficult to keep running.
