Raids to find four day-laborers kidnapped last month led to the arrests of 11 drug dealers near Cancun, according to official disclosures this week.
The case began last month when unknown individuals kidnapped four men working in the construction site of a hotel called “Eden Rock,” part of the Hard Rock chain. Relatives of the missing men openly complained that officials were ignoring their cries for help since the initial kidnapping on September 14.
More than a month after the initial kidnapping, the Quintana Roo Attorney General’s office (FGE) announced they carried out a raid near the hotel site and they had arrested 11 street-level drug dealers. Authorities also carried out another operation days before and arrested two men in an SUV.
