      There are only four people in the Vector agency, who are working to prevent the proliferation of mosquitoes in the wake of recent heavy rains. Of the four workers, two are employed by the state government, one is employed by the City, and the other is from the city of Cancun, as assistance.
    The head of the department, Adelfo Cruz Pujol said to do the work scheduled for the upcoming weeks, following the heavy rains, they actually require 21 workers, but there is just himself and two others, plus the person assisting from Cancun.
 He said,  "In the upcoming difficult days, when more rain is expected, the state needs to hire at least five employees and the city needs a dozen workers to do this work".  He explained that if this is not done, there may be a massive proliferation of mosquitoes, however if fogging is done, this prevents them from breeding.

Despite the intense work of the State police (PJE/State Judicial Police), motorcycle thefts continue to occur, though in most cases they are recovered the same day. When it occurs with golf carts, they are also abandoned somewhere on the island, and these thefts occur mostly at night. According to the PJE statistics, thefts of both types of vehicles have been reduced, and the cases that have been presented have been satisfactorily resolved. It appears in the solving of cases of scooters or golf carts, social networks such as Facebook and Twitter are very useful. This morning there were allegations of the theft of a gray Biz scooter on Facebook, with dozens of comments. At noon, the commander of the PJE said they had not been involved with this case, and no official complaint had been filed. He said it is common for owners of stolen units not to report them, and to recover the vehicles on their own.

Damage to carts being investigated
Se indaga sobre daño a carritos de golf.. [+] Ver mas
The police are not discussing the leads they are following or their investigation, but it is presumed that they are looking into the three young people who were involved with damaging a golf cart in August. A formal complaint has been filed by the owner of the Prisma golf carts, Rene Contreras. It appears that the burned unit may also have been robbed because there is some iron missing, which would not have melted or burned. State police chief Arturo Medina said they have no concrete information about the alleged perpetrators, and they will release more information when they have it.
