“Million-Peso Fraud Bust: Women Arrested in Tijuana!”

Two women have been arrested in Tijuana, Baja California, for their alleged involvement in a fraudulent scheme worth over 250 million pesos. The State Attorney General's Office, in collaboration with the Attorney General's Office of the Republic (FGR), executed the arrest warrant issued by a Control Judge. The suspects, identified as Rebeca “N” and Cecilia María “N”, were apprehended as they attempted to cross into the United States. Their plans were thwarted due to a timely red notice with immigration alerts from Interpol Mexico.

The charges stem from a business partnership the women formed through their company, Desarrolladora de la Riviera Maya, S. A. de C. V. (Derimaya), with the Secretary of Sustainable Urban Territorial Development in 2017. The partnership involved land and real estate sales contracts in the municipality of Solidaridad.

However, during an ordinary assembly held on November 24, 2021, several unaddressed tax administrative anomalies were detected within Derimaya, despite multiple requests from the Secretary of Sustainable Urban Territorial Development.

Following their arrest, the women were transferred to the State, where they were presented to the Control Judge who issued the warrant.
