Trio connected to six armed vehicle thefts in south arrested

Chetumal, Q. R. — Three people have finally been arrested for vehicle theft. The last of the three alleged involved was captured over the weekend. According to the  State Attorney General, Juan “A” was arrested for his alleged involvement in the theft of a taxi in February of this year.

According to their report, Juan “A” was one of three who “approached a victim in the municipality of Felipe Carrillo Puerto and upon arriving at the town of Nicolás Bravo, located in the municipality of Othón P. Blanco, was threatened with a firearm, stripped of the unit and its belongings, and finally left tied up in a mountain area.”

The incident happened “on February 27 of this year, when, after boarding a public service vehicle, threatened a victim with a firearm, who was stripped of the unit and his belongings and left tied to a tree on the federal highway south of Quintana Roo.”

In March, police arrested two others believed involved. In March, police in Campeche completed two arrest warrants against Aurora “S” and Herving “P” for their probable participation in the same crime.

The FGE says the trio are “a criminal group dedicated to the theft of motor units in the south of the state,” and that to date, they are believed responsible for six armed vehicle thefts in that area.
