In a statement, the prosecutor’s office said that elements attached to the Specialized Prosecutor’s Office for Crimes Against Health handed over to Interpol and FGR personnel Edgar “P” detained during a security and surveillance detail by the Quintana Roo Police and elements of the Mexican Army. In the operative, they secured what is suspected to be cocaine.

Once he was arrested and his rights read, Edgar “P” was taken for medical certification and transferred to the Specialized Prosecutor’s Office for Crimes against Health in the form of drug trafficking, where the corresponding investigation file was started.
