Fugitive on the run captured in Puerto Morelos

Puerto Morelos, Q.R. — A man who had been on the run for two years with an outstanding arrest warrant has been captured in Puerto Morelos. Marco Antonio “N”, who was wanted in the State of Mexico, was arrested by police Friday.

According to Mexico City media, the fugitive had an outstanding warrant for sexual abuse and rape equivalent against his niece. The allegations date back to May 15 of 2022 when he is accused of abusing his niece in her home in the city of Tecámac.

He was captured in the municipality of Puerto Morelos Friday by Investigative Police and has since been returned to the State of Mexico.

On Sunday, the Fiscalía General del Estado (FGE) said “the investigated person was captured by elements of the Investigative Police in the Municipality of Puerto Morelos. After the rigorous examinations he was handed over to the agents of the Edomex Prosecutor’s Office, who transferred them to said entity, in order to continue with the judicial process that follows.”

The FGE did not say where in Puerto Morelos Marco Antonio “N” was located or how long he is believed to have lived there.
