Cancun taxi driver suspended after videoed stealing hubcaps

Cancun, Q.R. — A taxi driver who was videoed stealing hubcaps in Cancun has been indefinitely suspended by the secretary of labor.

In a press release, Oscar Solis Soberanis from Labor of the Trade Union of Tax Drivers, reported that the taxi driver recorded stealing hubcaps from a private vehicle in a residential area of Cancun has been released from his duties under the Zero Tolerance policy implemented by the union.

He says that the driver was dismissed after he was seen involved in “wrongdoing or other reprehensible behavior to the detriment of any user or citizenship in general,” a claim that the taxi driver denies.

The suspended driver belonged to the Andrés Quintana Roo taxi union of Cancun and has been identified as M.A.I.G. He was videoed during nighttime hours removing hubcaps from a private car, however, he maintains that it is not him in the video.

The video, which was captured on a surveillance camera, was circulated throughout social media before landing on the desk of union officials. He has been ordered to pay for the damage caused and will be sanctioned by the union.
