Four girls rescued and one woman detained after discovery of Cancun human trafficking ring

Cancun, Q.R. — A criminal group of human traffickers was dismantled in the city of Cancun. According to the State Attorney General’s Office, the dismantling of the group was made possible with the use of undercover agents who rescued four girls and arrested one woman.

In a press release, Óscar Montes de Oca reported that the agency dismantled a gang dedicated to human trafficking for the purpose of sexual exploitation. “During the operation, implemented in conjunction with the Coordination Group for the Construction of Peace and Security in Quintana Roo, four female victims were rescued and one woman was arrested,” he detailed.
