Cozumel, Q.R. — A coordinated security operation in central Cozumel Friday sent two to jail and three to the INM office. The operation was carried out by elements of the Public Safety and Municipal Transit Directorate in the tourist areas.
The Director of Public Safety and Municipal Traffic, Rodrigo Rodríguez Peña, reported that the operation is part of the strategies to inhibit crime, adding that the operation was in coordination with elements of the National Guard, Ministerial Police and the National Institute of Migration.
