Two arrested in attempted Cancun gas station robbery

Cancun, Q.R. — Cancun police were successful in arresting two alleged thieves who threatened workers of a gas station in an attempt to make off with the night’s sales.

The attempted robbery took place Monday night in SM 226 with gas station attendants saying it was around 11:40 p.m. when the two subjects arrived at the Kabah Avenues station and threatened one of the workers.

However, the other station employees came to his defense. After a brief struggle, the gas pump employees said the pair ran off empty handed in the direction of SM 221, which is where police located them.

The two detainees were identified by the gas station workers as well as caught on video.
