Online predator captured in Cancun sting operation

Cancun, Q.R. — Francisco Esaú “N” has been arrested for luring Cancun women on social media under the pretense of job offers. Once in his trust, the women, between the ages of 17 and 23, are forced into prostitution.

The State Attorney General’s Office (FGE) reported the arrest of Francisco Esaú “N” after a search of a motel. Francisco Esaú “N” was arrested “for his probable responsibility in the commission of acts that could constitute the crime of human trafficking in the form of foreign prostitution,” the agency said in a statement.

Derived from intelligence and technological work, a publication was detected on the social network Facebook from a public group called “Jobs Cancún” in which a user requested a girl between 17 and 23 years old for the weekends, offering a payment of 3,900 pesos.

Due to the above, personnel assigned to the Special Prosecutor’s Office in Combating Crimes of Trafficking and Exploitation made contact with the now detained person. They offered him a minor for sexual services to whom Francisco Esaú “N” said he would pay 2,500 pesos for his 40 year old clients, the FGE explained.

According to the FGE, Francisco Esau “N” rented a motel room where he was expecting to meet the minor. “Once the subject was located, Investigative Police carried out the operation in which they proceed to arrest him in flagrante delicto.”
