The Venezuelan government has sent soldiers and police to take back the Tocorón prison, which served as the headquarters of the Tren de Aragua gang. This is the first time authorities have taken action against the country’s most feared criminal group. The prison had various facilities, including Bitcoin mining machines used for illegal mining. Four guards were arrested on suspicion of aiding the gang. Some inmates escaped during the raid, while others were relocated to different locations. Bitcoin mining operations in Venezuela were suspended in March due to investigations into a corruption scheme.
