In an unprecedented event, authorities of Yucatan law enforcement agencies captured two local criminal groups that have committed violent acts at sea off the Yucatecan coast.
Eleven suspects were detained in separate operations, and submitted to criminal prosecution for crimes against state police and robbery of a shipment of 1.1 tons of lobster at sea (worth approximately 1 million pesos).
Secretary of Public Security, Luis Felipe Saiden Ojeda, said both arrests were made without firing a single shot, in the ports of Progreso and Dzilam Bravo where these criminal groups dedicated to illegal traffic of sea cucumber had their operation headquarters.
The State attorney general Ariel Aldecua Kuk reported that the detainees will be prosecuted by a criminal court and that the investigations continue to dismantle the organized groups operating in the Yucatecan ports.
At a press conference in the Yucatan Siglo XXI Convention Center, the two officials mentioned above and the State Secretary General, Roberto Rodriguez Asaf, said the events are unprecedented in Yucatan, but state security forces carried out their work exceptionally, in order to keep under control any outbreak of violence and maintain peace and order for the people of the Yucatan.
The press conference was attended only by state security officials. There were no representatives of federal, naval or military authorities, apparently because these forces did not take part in this particular raid, since it was a State Security Operation against these two illegal organizations.
