Playa del Carmen police chase ends with five in jail

Playa del Carmen, Q.R. — A chase between Playa del Carmen police and a private car has lead to the arrests of five. On Wednesday, Solidaridad Police reported on the chase and capture of the five men.

Two people from outside the vehicle were seen exchanging, what appeared to be, bags of narcotics by patrolling officers. Once the youths spotted police, the three inside the vehicle fled the area, leaving their two comrades behind and leading police on a chase.

Their vehicle was eventually intercepted along 35th Avenue and 74th Street. The three from inside were arrested along with the other two from outside the vehicle who had already been picked up by police.

During their arrests, police located 60 bags of narcotics and one loaded handgun.
