There is disturbing news coming out of Chetumal Quintana Roo tonight. Mexican Newspaper Por Esto is reporting that the Prison in Chetunal has been taken over by criminals. The report states that a number of prisoners, headed by Carlos Cabanas Catzin, detained in the month of February 2013 for the trafficking of 45 kilos of Crystal meth are carrying out illicit activities inside and outside prison walls.
What’s more alarming is that, according to reports, prisoners carry out their criminal activities under the protection and administration of Secretary of Public Safety Carlos Bibiano Villa Castillo who is protected by two men accused of the murder of a police officer.
The newspaper reports that apart from protecting Villa Castillo, Ulises Martinez Jimenez and Eduardo Sanchez Hernandez served as body guards for Belizean National Hugo Cassanova from Calcutta Village in the Corozal District who along with Ermelindo Vasquez better known as Melin from Orange Walk Town is confined behind bars in Chetumal for drug trafficking. Both men were detained together with Catzin for drug trafficking. Reports suggest that prisoners count with cellular phones which they use to call and threaten their victims.
