Cozumel’s 107.7 FM “La Voz del Caribe” radio station, announced around 11:00 am on Friday Feb. 23, that a bomb threat was registered in Playa del Carmen’s “Navega” pier.
Apparently a suspicious bag was left inside one of the “Ultramar” ferries that connects Playa with Cozumel, and due to this situation, the security protocols were activated and the pier was evacuated.
Military personnel and firefighters arrived on site to carry out the corresponding procedures in order to detect any explosive devices inside the bag. With the collaboration of a K-Nine Unit, it was possible to determine that it was a false alarm. And the everyday activities at the Playa del Carmen’s “Navega” pier carried on normally.
However, staff of the Attorney General’s Office of Quintana Roo, in coordination with agents of the Attorney General’s Office (PGR), collected, packed and sent to a laboratory in Mexico City the first evidence found in the pier where on February 21, a ferry exploded.
The Office of the Prosecutor specified that the investigations initiated by opening file #19/2018, for the facts reported at 1:13 pm on Wednesday February 21, collecting the ministerial inquiries derived from the event, such as the Approved Police Report, the interviews with the affected people and the personnel of the vessel that were there during the incident.
The Office of the Public Prosecutor pointed out that coordinated work prevails in order to advance in the investigation and establish the cause of the explosion. In its statement, the Prosecutor stated that authorities do not rule out any line of investigation tending to analyze whether it was a mechanical failure or not.
In fact, experts from the Mexican Navy, the Federal Police of Mexico City and the American FBI (Federal Bureau of Investigation) will take part in the investigations as well.
