CANCÚN Quintana Roo (Times Media Mexico) – The Attorney General’s Office of the State of Quintana Roo provided evidence that was evaluated by a judge to link two taxi drivers from Cancún to the trial for their participation in the kidnapping of two Mexican tourists in the hotel zone.
In a statement, the Public Prosecutor’s Office stated that two drivers of the “Andrés Quintana Roo” Taxi Drivers Union are accused of being “accomplices of the crime of kidnapping,” so they were given an unofficial pretrial detention for two years.
The Attorney General’s Office pointed out that the resolution was achieved thanks to a field investigation and cabinet of the Ministerial Police attached to kidnappings, with scientific and professional bases and supported by experts specialized in different criminalistic areas.
Sufficient evidence to incriminate them
In the hearing held yesterday, July 24, the prosecutor of the Public Prosecutor’s Office Specialized in Investigation of Kidnappings provided sufficient elements to the control judge, who assessed them and dictated links to the process against Miguel “N” and Aureo “N”, who were the first suspects investigated for the kidnapping of two people from Nuevo Leon.
Tomorrow, Friday July 26, there will be a hearing to resolve the link to the process against four other people related to the same case.
Taxi drivers involved in criminal acts
This is the third case of Cancun taxi drivers involved in high-level crimes in recent months. Amongst those, when elements of the Navy arrested in the hotel zone a group of at least 8 cab drivers in possession of long and short weapons, camouflage clothing, magazines of various calibers, useful cartridges and 150 doses of drugs and an open investigation for the crime of “child sexual exploitation” after a taxi driver was arrested outside a motel, where he took a minor.
