Cancun, Q.R. — One of the 10 people arrested in a recent kidnapping in Cancun has been identified as a former Colombian police officer.

The Office of the Attorney General of the State of Quintana Roo says that after the arrest of the 10 that have been linked to the April 2 kidnapping of two people in Cancun, one of the members is a former agent of the Colombian National Police.

The Attorney General reports that Fabián G, who was part of the group arrested in SM 503 by Cancun police earlier this month, is a former Colombian police officer.

They also say that first investigations have determined that Edgar V, who was also part of the arrested group, has been identified as one of the leaders of the Jalisco Nueva Generación Cartel, a criminal cell originating in Jalisco.

They add that the backgrounds of the other eight detainees are being investigated by ministerial authorities to determine if they are related to other criminal acts. The group of 10 were taken into custody in Cancun April 2 after committing numerous violent robberies including home and business burglaries at gunpoint and kidnapping.
