CANCUN, Mexico Ė Five bodies were found Wednesday morning inside an abandoned vehicle near the prosecutorís office and the police department in the Mexican Caribbean resort city of Cancun, police said.
An unidentified person called the cityís emergency phone line to report that several bodies were inside an automobile parked outside a gym near the government offices.
Officers used a wrecker to haul the four-door automobile to the coronerís office with the bodies still inside.
Some of the bodies were in the passenger compartment and the others were in the trunk, police said.
A few hours later, the Quintana Roo state Attorney Generalís Office said it was increasing security at its offices in Cancun.
Visitors to the AGís office must now pass through a metal detector and submit all bags to a search.
The new procedures were implemented to comply with security protocols, the AGís office said.
On Tuesday, three municipal police officers were arrested in connection with the disappearance of four Colombians in the city of Benito Juarez, where Cancun is located.
Federal Attorney Generalís Office personnel arrested the four officers, but Quintana Roo AGís office investigators also worked on the case.
