A man was walking down the street in Tulum, Quintana Roo on Thursday September 3rd, when he became suspicious to local police officers, as he nervously tried to hide his backpack, and then hopped into a taxi with economic number 797.
A few blocks ahead, on the corner of Mercurio and Acuario streets, colonia Centro, the police stopped the cab, and proceeded to make a routine search on the man’s belongings, finding him in possession of 55 sea turtle eggs.
At 1:30 pm, the police proceeded to arrest N. Apolinar, and he was taken to the Attorney General’s Office based in Cozumel, and placed in custody along with the evidence.
The incident was reported to the Ministry of Environmental and Natural Resources (Semarnat), and Tulum National Park official Perla Veronica García de la Cruz arrived onsite to conduct the proper legal procedures, since the detainee had removed eggs from the beach of Caleta Tankah.
