Cancun police arrest 3 for drug, firearm offenses

Cancun, Q.R. — Three youths were detained by Quintana Roo Police over the weekend, accused of drug and firearm offenses.

The trio were taken into police custody on Rancho Viejo Avenue along the Cancun-Isla Mujeres mainland municipality border after police witnessed two subjects on a motorcycle handing a suspicious bag to another inside a truck.

The hand-off promoted patrolling police to inspect the vehicle, which lead to the discovery of drugs. Police reported finding the driver of the truck in possession of seven bags of cocaine, while the two on the motorcycle were found carrying 12 and 31 bags respectively along with a .9mm firearm and ammunition.

Taken into custody for the state attorney general were 30-year-old Armando N along with Aron N and N Irving N, both 23.
