In this sense, the man, who identified himself as a 26-year-old Canadian citizen, delved into the fact that he was heading towards the municipality of Toluca in the State of Mexico. After his apprehension, he was informed of his rights and presented before the agent of the Public Ministry who will determine his legal situation.

He also assured that the latest violent events “they go far beyond” actions in intelligence by the Mexican authorities, mainly due to the fact that These are groups that “do not operate in the entity” and that they are totally foreign to the state of Quintana Roo.

The goal is to work together, assured the president, in order to identify international groups that want to extend their influence to the Riviera Maya.

In the last six months, the state of Quintana Roo has already experienced numerous episodes of insecurity led by criminal gangs. In October 2021, for example, a shooting at a restaurant in Tulum – one of the most fashionable places in the region – left two foreign tourists dead and three others injured.

Added to this is the murder of two Canadian tourists inside the city’s main tourist park and the crime of an Argentine businessman.

Last Friday, a shooting inside a hotel located in Playa del Carmen left two Canadians dead and one injured.
