Four make off with safe from Cancun Hotel Zone restaurant

Cancun, Q.R. — Four armed men who arrived behind a restaurant by boat in the Cancun Hotel Zone have allegedly left with the safe.

The robbery was reported Monday morning by staff at Harry’s Restaurant when the security guard reported being tied up and put inside a storeroom while the men robbed the restaurant.

According to the security guard, four men allegedly arrived armed with guns at the restaurant by boat from Laguna Nichupté. They entered the premises, tied him up and proceeded to make off with the safe and bottles of liquor.

The 32-year-old guard was finally able to contact the Tourist Police of the Cancun Hotel Zone at 7:00 a.m. when employees began arriving for their shift.

On site surveillance cameras were apparently tampered with prior to the men committing the robbery.

La Fiscalía General del Estado has begun an investigation into the robbery. There have not been any arrests.
