Cancun, Q.R. — Elements of the Quintana Roo Police arrested a man after receiving the report of a suspicious person. Police responded to the report in SM 68, where upon arriving at an address, a man requested police support, pointing to a male who was wearing a uniform of the Benito Juárez City Council.
Police saw the man was wearing a shirt with the General Directorate of Legal Affairs logo and also carried a card identifying him as a public official. After an interview, police found the card was not real, which lead to his arrest.
The complainant said that the alleged city hall employee had requested 6,000 peso in “fines” since store employees were not wearing mouth masks. Police verified that the man did not work for the municipality of Benito Juárez.
Police say 40-year-old Alejandro N, who is from Acapulco, was taken into custody for the crime of usurpation of functions.
