PLAYA DEL CARMEN – On Monday July 31, Playa del Carmen police officers and Mexican Army soldiers detained a couple carrying a backpack with more than 20 kilograms of marijuana on 10th street, Centro.
As a security operation was conducted, two more packages with the same characteristics were found meters away from the couple that was detained.
Preliminary data indicates that three boxes filled with marijuana, totalling 60 kilograms (132 lbs) were seized by Municipal police officers, around 4:00 am on Monday July 31.
Two individuals walking with suspicious behavior by the beach were subjected to a routine check and the police found that the backpack was filled with marijuana.
A few meters away from where the couple was detained, there were two other similar packages also filled with marijuana.
So far it is unknown whether the drug belongs to the couple, or if they already had plans to pick them up then.
The suspects were taken to the premises of the Attorney General’s Office (PGR), and their legal status is yet to be determined.
