Playa del Carmen police detain three on weapons charges

Playa del Carmen, Q.R. — Three people were arrested in Playa del Carmen after trying to escape from police Thursday. Police say a suspicious taxi driver with two passengers was pulled over in the Misión de las Flores subdivision just before midnight.

The taxi stopped only long enough for one of his passengers to get out and run before the unit carried on. That man was stopped and arrested. The driver of the taxi was intercepted by police in the Galaxia 1 neighborhood where the driver and one remaining passenger were taken into custody.

Police noted finding a firearm, but did not specify the caliber. The three arrested were Daniel N, Hugo N and Martín N, all of whom, have been handed over to the corresponding authorities.
