American part of trio captured in kidnapping of man in Puerto Aventuras

Puerto Aventuras, Q.R. — Two men and one woman were arrested by elements of the Municipal Solidaridad Police after being accused kidnapping a French man. Late Wednesday, the Seguridad Pública of Solidaridad reported on the Puerto Aventuras arrests.

“The Municipal Police thwarted a possible deprivation of liberty and detained three subjects, managing to free the possible victim when responding to a request for help when they were patrolling in the area of Ekumal Villa Duendes.

“Elements of the Preventive Police were approached by a subject who told them that moments before, three people threatened him and forcibly took his companion, so police began a search operation to locate them, managing to reach them several meters ahead,” they reported in a brief statement.

Taken into custody were Diego “N”, 39 from Monterrey, Yudith “N”, 36 from Coahuila and an American man identified as Isaías “N”, 43. All three “were located and secured at the time they were trying to force a person into a property, which they released when they noticed the police presence. They tried to flee but were detained,” the police report added.

They were subsequently placed at the disposal of the State Attorney General’s Office for the possible commission of the crime of kidnapping.
