Shocking Arrest: Couple Busted with Drugs in Playa del Carmen

In the Villas del Sol neighborhood of Playa del Carmen, a man and a woman were arrested by local police on suspicion of marijuana possession. The individuals, identified as 52-year-old Emiliano "N" from Michoacán and 42-year-old Leslie "N" from Mexico City, were apprehended on Chit Street.
