An arrest is made in the murder of active Playa del Carmen police officer

Playa del Carmen, Q.R. — A man has been arrested in the Misión Villamar I residential area of Playa del Carmen on murder and attempted murder charges. On Friday, the Attorney General reported the arrest of Hedilberto C in the death of an active police officer and the attempted murder of a man.

The FGE says Hedilberto C was taken into police custody after an arrest warrant was issued. The warrant was agreed upon after an investigation attributed him to the death of the woman and attempted murder of the unidentified man.

On October 17, police located the man and woman inside the trunk of a car parked on 85th Avenue and 3rd Street in the Ejidal neighborhood of Playa del Carmen. Inside, they found the deceased woman, who was an active officer, and an injured man. The man was taken to hospital and survived the attempt on his life.

Hedilberto C was located with support of city surveillance cameras. He was taken into custody from a street in the Misión Villamar I on Friday.
