Two with loaded gun detained in Puerto Aventuras

Puerto Aventuras, Q.R. — Municipal Police in Puerto Aventuras report the arrest of a man and woman after they were found traveling with a loaded weapon. The couple were taken into police custody after they were stopped for driving without a front plate.

Police noticed the white Jetta was without a front license plate along Eje del Equilibrio Avenue, which prompted them to pull the vehicle over. However, the driver had other plans. Instead of pulling over, he attempted to flee, driving into a closed street.

Police blocked his only exit point and proceeded with a security inspection, which is when they found the loaded gun. Since it was not a legally registered weapon, both 28-year-old Jonathan N from Veracruz and his passenger, 31-year-old Arleny N from Chiapas were arrested. The two children traveling in the car were handed over to DIF (Desarrollo Integral de la Familia) of Solidaridad.
