Quintana Roo criminal leader and her hitman arrested in neighboring state for murder of four in Cancun

Cancun, Q.R. — A woman who was on the state’s most wanted list of criminals has been arrested along with her hitman. Yolanda “N” was taken into police custody in Campeche Wednesday in collaboration with the Campeche State Attorney General’s Office.

According to the Quintana Roo branch, an arrest warrant was served on Yolanda “N”, who the FGE says, is the leader of one of the main criminal groups in Quintana Roo.

“Along with Yolanda “N”, her hitman Pedro “N” was also captured in Campeche,” they reported. Both are suspects in the murder of four people in Cancun. The murders, according to the Quintana Roo FGE, took place on June 18 of this year.

“According to investigations, these homicides occurred in a context of drug related crimes where Yolanda “N” allegedly ordered that they be deprived of their lives, in two different events, for not complying with an agreement,” the agency said.

“Derived from field, intelligence and technological investigation work, elements of the Quintana Roo State Attorney General’s Office, with the collaboration of the Campeche Attorney General’s Office, managed to arrest Yolanda “N” and Pedro “N” in that state,” they added.

Both have been transferred to Quintana Roo and admitted to the Benito Juárez Social Reintegration Center (Cereso) where they will face charges.
