CANCUN — Five heavily armed men, who are allegedly members of a local organized crime group, were arrested by police connected with Quintana Roo’s Attorney General’s Office (Fiscalía General del Estado: FGE).
The agency reported that agents of the Ministerial Police captured five men who were found in possession of three AR-15 long-arms, a pistol, clips, and live ammunition. Suspects and weapons were placed under custody of the Federal Public Ministry.
The Prosecutor’s Office revealed that the arrest of the suspects was made by Ministerial Police officers, after an operation on Friday November 24 on Tulum Avenue, in downtown Cancun.
Police officers set up an inspection point where they detected the armed subjects on board a Chevrolet minivan and a Toyota Corolla.
The detainees were identified as Jorge M F. G, Josue SM, Christian GMT, Misael M. G and Alberto SR, who were immediately arrested as the weapons were found.
The suspects were taken by members of the Mexican Navy and Ministerial Police Agents to the premises of the local delegation of the Attorney General’s Office (PGR), where the corresponding proceedings were carried out.
