Translated by Fulano from an article in Poresto.net.
The events occurred at 2:30PM, when the operators at the emergency call center received a call wherein it was reported there was an assault at the “Taj Mahal” cenote, located 15 miles south of the city. There was an apparent operation implemented by the State Judicial Police, Municipal Police and Federal Police, who surrounded the site when they arrived, while the public minister investigated what happened.
One of the location administrators, who asked to remain anonymous, said that several tourist were diving in the crystal clear waters, when three subjects carrying semi-automatic pistols and wearing ski masks, entered from the side of the property and threatened the few visitors who were under the trees and who were forced to lay on the ground. The thieves went to work breaking into the vehicles to steal valuable objects.
The most startling moment was when a group of divers, being led by a Spanish guide who is only known by the name of Nathaly, came out of the cenote and were immediately threatened by the assailants and forced to lay on the ground while they were relieved of many aquatic computers they were carrying for their dives into the cenote.
Once the thieves had their loot, the left running by a dirt road and entered an area where the evidence shows they were smoking marijuana cigarettes, and then left southbound to a barbwire fence where some of the food they stole from the cars they broke into were found, and as a signature of their robbery, they hung a ski mask at that location.
According to one of the “Taj Mahal” cenote administrators, the Attorney General, through commander Gustavo Rodríguez, ordered them to prohibit access to and to not talk with the news media, in a useless effort to hide the inefficiency that has plunged the population into violence, which sadly has reached alarming levels, which they intend to hide by cutting off the right of free speech.
