twinsDetails are still sketchy but CTV3 news understands that two men allegedly from Orange Walk were detained by Mexican authorities in Cancun on Thursday, April 21st.

According to El Diario de Quintana Roo, 24 year old twin brothers Guilton Oswaldo and Walter Antonio López, believed to be of Belizean nationality, were arrested on Thursday afternoon after Mexican authorities searched a residence in Cancun, Mexico.

According to the newspaper, authorities, acting on information received through their emergency line, visited a residential area known as Villas del Sol. As the entire area was surrounded, a group of Police Officers searched house number 20 where they found a stock of weapons and four persons inside, identified as twin brothers Guilton Oswaldo and Walter Antonio Lopez, 22 year old Moisés Martinez Sanchez of Yucatan Mexico and 28 year old Ana Isabel Rodriguez Zetina of Tabasco Mexico. Six other persons are believed to have been able to escape from the area before Police arrived.

The newspaper reports that when questioned by authorities the Lopez brothers indicated that they were forced to work for a group known as Los Pelones after members of their family who reside in Belize were kidnapped. While the men told authorities they were brought to the house on Monday, April 18th, the woman claimed she was simply hired to work at the residence as a cleaning lady.

Inside the residence Police also found a magazine for an AK-47 rifle with 15 cartridges, a .38 pistol with two magazines and 14 rounds of ammunition and a 9mm pistol with 19 cartridges.
