Cancun, Q.R. — Two men accused of drug trafficking and possession of weapons in Quintana Roo have been formally charged. The Attorney General of the Republic (FGR) says the men were charged after the discovery of a large amount of fentanyl in a Cancun home.
Both men have been ordered to remain imprisoned during their trials. The men are being charged with possession of fentanyl with the intent to sell. They are also facing illegal firearm charges.
Their arrests stem from a joint operation between agents of the Federal Ministerial Police (PFM) of the Criminal Investigation Agency (AIC) and members of the National Guard (GN) who carried out a property search in Cancun.
During the search operation, Manuel “H”, a Guatemalan national and Lester “M”, a Mexican national, were arrested. At the scene, a total of 600 fentanyl tablets, a loaded short firearm, six mobile devices and a van were seized.
Their trials are scheduled to begin in two months. State authorities are now on alert to the presence of fentanyl in Quintana Roo.
