In a statement, the prosecutor’s office said that elements attached to the Specialized Prosecutor’s Office for Crimes Against Health handed over to Interpol and FGR personnel Edgar “P” detained during a security and surveillance detail by the Quintana Roo Police and elements of the Mexican Army. In the operative, they secured what is suspected to be cocaine.

Once he was arrested and his rights read, Edgar “P” was taken for medical certification and transferred to the Specialized Prosecutor’s Office for Crimes against Health in the form of drug trafficking, where the corresponding investigation file was started.
Wanted by the DEA and Interpol
According to the investigations, Edgar “P” is related to at least two more files and has an arrest and extradition order from Interpol. The suspect was placed at the disposal of the federal authorities in Mexico and the United States Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) for the probable import and distribution of various types of alkaloids.
