Two officers arrested for property theft under police protection

Bacalar, Q.R. — Two officers were arrested Thursday for the robbery of a home that was under police protection. The owner of the home filed a criminal complaint against the two officers for theft of property.

Elements of the Ministerial Police detained an agent of the Quintana Roo Police and a custodian of the Center for Social Reintegration (Cereso) of Chetumal after being denounced for the crime of robbery of a house under police protection in Bacalar.

The house was seized by authorities after a drug search by Fiscalía Especializada en Delitos contra la Salud (FEDCS) September 3.

The report indicates that the Quintana Roo police officer was assigned to the custody of an insured property in the municipality of Bacalar after the arrest of two persons and the seizure of 172 doses of drugs.

According to the FGE report, the house was under the protection of the Quintana Roo Police. Since then, the officer assigned as guard of the property took advantage of his charge to allegedly steal property with the support of a custodian from the Cereso of Chetumal.

Both were arrested and made available to the Ministerio Público who specialized in corruption (Fiscalía Especializada en Combate a la Corrupción).
