Here you can see the distribution of murders in August 2013 in Carabobo State. You can see the Valencia (in yellow) registered the highest amount of murders. That doesn't mean that's the municipality with the highest murder rate. Tocuyito (blueish to the West of Valencia) and Los Guayos (pink to the East) have a higher murder rate.
On the chart above you can see the total amount of murders per municipality since 2006. It seems the amount of murders has stabilized...but it has stabilized at a very high level.
For comparison: last year the Comunidad Autónoma Valenciana in Spain registered 50 murders for its 5 million inhabitants. Carabobo, where Venezuelan Valencia is located, registered over 1500 murders for its 2.3 million citizens just from January to October of last year.
The murder rate has more than tripled since 1999.
On another topic: the government announced the Vergatario, Chávez's idea of a mobile, is going to be sold now for the equivalent of 389 dollars. The government will say that's a socialist price. As dollars are tightly controlled by the government, other mobiles will be even more expensive. A "socialist mobile" in Venezuela is much more expensive than a good mobile in the USA or Britain...and Venezuelans earn a fraction of what US Americans or Western Europeans earn.
The economy is absolutely running amok in Venezuela.
