Pair found with list of Cancun addresses arrested for usurpation of public functions

Cancun, Q.R. — Two men posing as Infonavit employees have been arrested by Cancun police. The pair were detained after a homeowner flagged down patrolling police reporting a vehicle with men onboard taking photos of him and his home.

The unidentified homeowner told police that he approached the men in the Yucatan-plated car. When questioned, the men claimed they were employees of Infonavit, the Institute of the National Housing Fund for Workers (Instituto del Fondo Nacional de la Vivienda para los Trabajadores).

Police went with the man to his home in SM 222, however, they had gone. Their Matiz vehicle was located nearby. When questioned by police, both men repeated that they were federal employees of Infonavit.

Inside their vehicle, police found a list of home addresses and documents that were not printed on Infonavit letterhead. When their employee story did not check out, police proceeded to arrest 35-year-old Ángel N and 22-year-old Eibi N for usurpation of official functions and invasion of privacy.
