Citizen report of gunfire leads to Playa del Carmen arrests

Playa del Carmen, Q.R. — Elements of the Municipal Police of Solidaridad arrested two subjects and secured three firearms after a citizen report of gunfire.

The General Directorate of Public Security announced that agents attended the report of detonations of a firearm in the vicinity of the Bosque Real subdivision. A search operation for those responsible began. Police say they located two subjects on a motorcycle, one of which was holding a wrapped item that appeared to show the barrel of a firearm.

Once stopped, police began a routine inspection which is when they found the first subject carrying a hand gun, cartridges and a metal case that contained marijuana. The second male subject was found carrying two weapons with cartridges.

Both were consigned to the Attorney General’s Office for legal processing.
