An American tourist that arrived to Cozumel in a cruise ship, was arrested on Monday March 24th, after allegedly taking pictures of an under age girl in a eco-park.

Security personnel informed that yesterday at around 12:15 hrs. the tourist was apprehended  in the eco-park of Chankanaab, in the southern part of the island.

The American visitor was later identified as Jackson Samuel Milton. The mother of the minor solicited the detention of the man after she caught him taking pictures of her 15 year old daughter, it is worth mentioning that this woman is also an American tourist on vacation in the island of Cozumel.

The photographs were delivered to a civil Judge, who revised the images  and it was confirmed that in fact Mr. Samuel Milton had taken pictures of the girl as well as other passengers of the cruiser.

Miguel Ángel Álvarez Vega, Senior Officer of Cozumel City Hall refused to provide more information about the rest of the pictures, stating that he didn’t have the opportunity to view them all. Nevertheless, he assured that Mr. Milton had to pay a fine of $2,500 MXN ($187 USD) under the charges of altering the order. After the fine was paid, local authorities took him back to the ship.

The judge also stated that he gave the captain of the boat, the arrest order and the photographs, in order for him to determine whether his trip is canceled and later transported to the United States or if he will remain in custody onboard until reaching american shores.
