Agents of the Special Forces Division of the Mexican Federal Police managed to arrest five suspects who kept a whole family abducted, including 7 children, in the 229 region of Cancún.

According to a report from the corporation, on Dec. 25, a group of agents who were walking on the Avenida Niños Héroes was intercepted by a woman who identified herself as D.M.I. and asked for help because a group of people had their children and relatives locked inside their house.

The woman said that the kidnappers were asking for a payment of $ 20,000 and two cell phones to release them.

The police officers, who are part of Operation Kukulcán, moved to the indicated address and, with the authorization of the owner, entered and detained 5 people, including a woman.

The five were identified by the victims as those who had deprived them of their liberty and confirmed the amount demanded as ransom.

The people rescued are G.A.V., aged 24; A.M.A., 20 years old; S.Á.R., of 16; L.S.L.M. and J.M.L.M., both of 10; F.S.M., of 5; C.G.V.C., of 13; F.A.V.M, of 1 year, and V.H, of only month and a half old.
