His warriors successfully captured numerous guns and horses, which made possible a much more protracted rebellion during which both Santa María (modern Palmeras Grises, DS) and Santiago (modern Faro, DS) were looted and burned. Finally, the colonial governor Isidora Blandián appointed the unscrupulous Isaac Gutiérrez as commander of the Colonial Army.
