Two Cancun cops arrested for allegedly uttering death threats

Cancun, Q.R. — Two men who were arrested by Cancun police for allegedly making a death threat are reported to be city police officers.

Elements of the Quintana Roo Police made the arrests after a couple reported being threatened with death while at a Cancun gas station. Authorities specify that Quintana Roo Police officers were making a prevention and surveillance tour in the 97 region when they assured two men who were traveling in a gray car.

Both suspects are allegedly responsible for threatening a motorist. According to the report, the victim told the agents that moments before, he was at a gas station with his partner when they were approached by the pair in a gray car. One of them took out a firearm and threatened him with death. The man said he immediately accelerated his car to leave and that his assailants followed him several blocks until he requested police support.

The alleged aggressors were identified as 40-year-old Eddi N and 26-year-old and Roger N. The detainees presented identification that accredits them as elements of the Ministerial Police and the Quintana Roo Police, respectively. Both detainees belong to police corporations and are accused of abuse of authority and threats.

During the arrest, police located a backpack where inside they found a firearm and stocked magazines. Both were arrested and transferred to the Municipal Secretariat.
