Mercenary turns himself in to the Venezuelan people

Caracas, May 6 (RHC)-- A mercenary turned himself in to Venezuelan authorities on Wednesday, following the arrest of several terrorists working on behalf of foreign entities. 

The mercenary, Romel Mendez, confessed on camera that he was hired to drive a speedboat from a place called La Guajira.

Mendez first surrendered to Venezuelan fishermen that were active along the coast of the Aragua state; they then turned the mercenary in to local authorities.  This latest arrest comes just 24 hours after 13 mercenaries, including two former U.S. military personnel, were apprehended along the Colombian coast.

The first arrests by the Venezuelan authorities came on Monday, when they confronted a group of mercenaries trying to penetrate the Bolivarian Republic's territorial waters. 

The Venezuelan authorities engaged the mercenaries, killing, wounding and arresting a number of them during the incident.
