SIXTEENTH COMPANY, FIFTH REGIMENT
SECOND BRIGADE, MARINE CORPS
ESTELI NICARAGUA
21 MAY 1928

From: Marine Gunner L. Jenkins, U.S.M.C.
To: The Commanding Officer, Marine Detachment, Esteli, Nicaragua.
Subject: Report of Patrol.

     1.   In compliance with your verbal orders, I cleared Esteli at 1230 Saturday, 19 May, 1928 to investigate airplane reports of presence of bandits near Trinidad.

     2.   Leaving Esteli at 1230, 19 May, with fourteen enlisted men, we proceeded to Trinidad, arriving there at 1800, same date, found all quiet. There were quite a number of men in Trinidad but no excitement. We met one Senor Vicente Benavides, who was on his way to Esteli to make a report of bandit activities around his ranch. He returned to Trinidad with me and furnished his nephew as a guide to lead us to the bandit camp. From Trinidad we took the Jinotega road for about fifteen miles and from information furnished by natives, we must have been just about one day behind the bandits. Upon arriving at the place where the bandits were supposed to be we learned that a Marine patrol had passed there the day before and the bandits had fled. We later learned that it was Lieutenant Kenyon's patrol that had encountered the bandits. From information furnished by natives, which I believe to be reliable, the bandits, after being hit by Lieutenant Kenyon's patrol, disbanded, some going toward Colon and others toward Trinidad. On our return trip to Esteli, we apprehended one Bandilio Espinosa who had in his possession one S&W pistol cal. 38 special. Espinosa was turned over to the Civil Police of Esteli.

/s/ L. JENKINS

127/113C/33

Summary & Notes:

   15 Marines from Estelí to La Trinidad.
   Vicente Benavides, ranch owner, in La Trinidad, on his way to Estelí to report "bandit activities."
   Patrol chases rumors of "bandits" (EDSN) southeast toward Jinotega; from native info, figure they are about 1 day behind them; native reports of Lt. Kenyon's passing patrol evidently accurate (see next report).
   EDSN scatters after fight, some to Colón (Colón Valley, EDSN hotbed), others to La Trinidad.

   Bandilio Espinoza (?) arrested with .38 S&W pistol, turned over to Civil Police, Estelí; shows there's a functioning local civil administration by this time.
