Cancun taxi driver with million peso bounty captured in Chiapas

Isla Mujeres, Q.R. — A man with a million peso bounty on his head has been captured in Chiapas. On Thursday, the State Attorney General briefly announced the capture of Marcos “C”, a former Cancun taxi driver who was wanted in the disappearance of a 12-year-old Isla Mujeres girl, Fernanda “N”.

The girl was last seen July 21 walking to the house of Marcos “C”, where she worked cleaning. Her family reported her missing when she failed to return home from her dish washing job later that day.

In early August, the FGE released the name and photo of a suspect, Marcos “C”, who was wanted in the young girl’s disappearance. The state agency offered a one million peso reward “for information that leads to the location of the probable participant in the crime” of her disappearance.

Marcos “C” was finally arrested in the city of San Cristóbal de las Casas, Chiapas November 10. The FGE has not released any information surrounding the case including the whereabouts of the young Isla Mujeres girl.

In a briefing, the agency has only said “the FGE of Quintana Roo reports that Investigative Police arrested Marcos “C” in the State of Chiapas, for whom a reward of one million pesos was offered for the disappearance of a minor last August in the municipality of Benito Juárez.”

Update: Quintana Roo authorities have said that since “it was public servants who managed to locate him,” the million peso reward will not be paid out to an individual for the capture of Marcos “C”.
