Three men were arrested in Ituzaingó as suspects for the brutal crime of businessman Esteban Gabriel Izzo, shot dead during an assault in San Antonio de Padua, in which his wife, daughter of a well-known businessman dedicated to the manufacture of trailers and semi-trailers, was also seriously injured.
One of the detainees was identified as Walter Rodríguez Sierra (53), a Uruguayan citizen who is the owner of the car found on Friday night in which the gang allegedly used to commit the act.
Judicial sources informed Telam that the operation was carried out at 2400 Juan Martínez Street, between Cuyo and Hortiguera, in the town of Ituzaingó, where two 18-year-olds were also captured, one of them the son of the previous suspect.
Police found 87 .40 caliber ammunition; 151 9 mm caliber ammunition, and 3 .380 ammunition.
The arrests took place in the framework of five raids carried out in different parts of Castelar Sur, Ciudadela and Ituzaingó.
In that context, at 3525 Gervasio Pavón Street in Castelar, agents of the local Departmental Delegation of Investigations (DDI) found parked on the street, in front of a kiosk called "Mandale mecha", the gray Volkswagen Gol Power, patent FCB 164, used by the assailants and whose owner is Rodríguez Sierra.

Inside, the troops seized a mitten, a bar, a pneumatic shear-type cutter (short padlock), and tools.
Sources close to the case said that the "Uruguayan" had a satellite monitoring center in his house that controlled that business, so he was watching live when the police checked the hijacked car.
He also had on his cell phone, which was kidnapped, other addresses that were listed as targets to monitor.
