Cancun kidnappers each sentenced to 70 years

Cancun, Q.R. — Two men have each been sentenced to 70 years in prison for their role in an express kidnapping. On Monday, Israel “N” and Arley “N” were sentenced by a Cancun judge for the kidnapping of three people in 2018.

The pair were sentenced for the June 2018 kidnapping of two adults and a minor from their vehicle in central Cancun. The three were forcefully removed from their vehicle on Avenue La Luna “where they threatened the victims using firearms,” authorities have reported.

“Subsequently, they went to the victims’ commercial establishment located in the Álamos II subdivision where they were robbed of money, personal belongings, documents and a vehicle, which they then used to escape.

“The investigations carried out by the Investigative Police led to the location and arrest of Israel “N” and Arley “N” in the state of Yucatán, for which they were transferred to Cancun and tried.”

On Monday, both were sentenced to 70 years in prison and fined 483,600 pesos.
