Man apprehended on possession charges identified as criminal cell member

Cancun, Q.R. — A man arrested on narcotics and firearm possession charges has been identified as a member of a local criminal cell. On Thursday, the State Attorney General’s Office identified José Romualdo “N” as a “generator of violence” in the state.

He was taken into police custody Wednesday along with Dayni Paola “N”, who were arrested after being found in possession of narcotics, two guns and ammo. The pair were apprehended from the El Pedregal neighborhood of Cancun after patrolling officers saw them handling bags of what was believed to be drugs.

A search revealed bags of crack cocaine, marijuana, crystal meth, two loaded firearms, five magazines and additional ammunition.
