More drugs thrown over Playa del Carmen prison wall

Playa del Carmen, Q.R. — For the second time in a week, packages of marijuana were thrown over the Playa del Carmen prison wall, landing inside the property.

On Tuesday, on site security found three one-kilo packages of marijuana that had been thrown over the wall of the Municipal Retention Center. By the time the packages were found, those who threw them were nowhere to be seen.

A few days earlier, police arrested a young man and woman after they heaved two packages of marijuana over the same prison wall. The pair were caught after they were seen driving away. Their vehicle was intercepted a short distance from the prison and the two, taken into police custody.
