Man kidnapped from Cancun home identified as former police officer

Cancun, Q.R. — A vehicle stolen in a Cancun kidnapping Wednesday has been located, however, its owner, a former police officer, remains missing. A private security camera recorded the 10:00 a.m. kidnapping of the unidentified man from the front of his home.

While he was locking a gate after leaving the property, two SUVs arrived. At least five armed men appeared, three of whom physically attacked the man (in the white t-shirt), while the other two kept watch.

After a few moments of fighting, the man was forcefully hauled into the back of the first SUV that was used to block his vehicle in, before the second vehicle, along with his own SUV, were driven off by his alleged kidnappers.

The incident happened in the Haciendas Real del Caribe subdivision in Region 202 of Cancun around 10:00 a.m. All three SUVs were driven away, but only the red vehicle owned by the kidnapped man, has been located.

Police were able to identify the found vehicle as that of a former officer. Their search began after Emergency 911 received the report of the kidnapping. The SUV was found abandoned on Avenida Niños Héroes in Supermanzana 212, however, there was no sign of the missing man.
