Thieves follow-up on previous robbery only to get arrested

Playa del Carmen, Q.R. — Two people were arrested after fleeing in a stolen vehicle in the community of Real Ibiza in Playa del Carmen Thursday.

The pair were taken into custody after a police search led to their discovery when the homeowner saw them breaking into his garage. In January, the trunk of the homeowner’s vehicle was pried open while parked on CTM, the thieves taking off with a backpack that contained the homeowner’s identification as well as a garage door opener.

The pair of thieves returned to the home and, using the garage door opener from the backpack four months earlier, stole the car inside the garage, however, the homeowner was in the house watching and called police.

Municipal police patrols were quick to move into the area, and after a few minutes of searching, found the pair driving the stolen vehicle.
