On the night of Thursday, February 28 four hooded armed men assaulted three fishermen in high sea, off the coasts of Progreso, Yucatán. And in a separate incident, between 2 and 2:30 in the morning a boat that was anchored in front of the west side of the beach of Progreso, was stolen.
The 25-foot-long riparian vessel, owned by José Gabriel Ceballos Cano, “Huiro”, was abandoned near the mouth of the Yucalpetén harbor. However, the thieves removed the Yamaha 60-outboard horsepower motor.
The thieves, who apparently are part of the same gang of hooded assailants on the high seas, and they also tried to steal the 29-foot long boat “Ivan,” which was anchored near the beach and has an outboard motor of 200 horsepower, but apparently, the engine was too heavy and they couldn’t remove it.
Ceballos Cano explained that he arrived at the beach on Friday March 1, at 3:30 in the morning to go fishing, but he did not find his boat. He immediately reported it to the police; and police officers started the search on coast and sea.
At 7 o’clock in the morning the municipal police officers conducting the search operation, received a report that almost at the entrance to the mouth of the Yucalpetén harbor, there was a white boat abandoned, with the characteristics of the stolen one.
The fishermen boarded the boat “Ivan” and went to that place; municipal and state police did it along the coast. The stolen boat was found without the outboard motor; the seamen towed it to the beach.
It was said that also on Thursday Feb. 28, a boat anchored in front of the beach was stolen (it didn’t have an outboard motor though).
Finally, local fishermen stated that in recent days they have seen suspicious people who haunt the beach, they identify them as Alvaradeños (from Alvarado, Ver.), who could be the faces behind the masks, and material authors of boat and marine engines.
