Pair seen by police trying to break into PDC parking lot vehicles arrested

Playa del Carmen, Q.R. — A man and woman seen by police attempting to break into vehicles were arrested from central Playa del Carmen Tuesday. The pair were taken into police custody after becoming aggressive when approached by city officers.

After their arrests, an identification run through Mexico’s criminal database system Plataforma México revealed one of them had an outstanding arrest warrant in Cancun for theft.

“Julio “N”, 48 years old and originally from Veracruz and Mayra “N”, 37 years old from Yucatán, were arrested by elements of the Preventive Police on 25th Avenue in the Centro neighborhood,” the SSC (Citizen Security of Solidaridad) reported.

“The pair were arrested while driving a Toyota brand vehicle, Avanza model, without obeying the instructions of the officers who repeatedly attempted to stop them after observing one of them apparently trying to open several vehicles in the parking lot of a shopping center,” the SSC (Seguridad Ciudadana Solidaridad) added.

“When speaking with the subjects, they adopted an aggressive attitude and attacked the police officers. They were arrested and placed at the disposal of the State Attorney General’s Office.

“Likewise, after entering Julio “Ns” data into the system, he has a warrant for the crime of theft in the municipality of Benito Juárez.”
