Arrested Belizean could go free if no complaint filed LINK  
  The Chief of Police said that on Sunday an emergency call was received concerning the Belizean who had rented a scooter as a tourist and was arrested for burglarizing homes at the southern part of the island. He was caught red-handed, but could be released on Monday night, 36 hours after his arrest, if the victims don't file a complaint against him.
       Although complaints were made on social networks, it is necessary to file a formal complaint, said the police chief. He noted that the 47 year-old from Belize, "Armando N.", has committed crimes in other municipalities.

Isla Mujeres news briefs  

Breves de Isla Mujeres

 During "Orange Month" the City has been conducting activities in support of the Elimination of Violence Against Women & Children.  These events began on Nov. 7 and will end on Sunday, in addition to the messages that have been painted around the isle during the past year, which are part of the City's ongoing campaign on this issue.

On Monday morning, it was observed that the "I" is missing from the photo op sign behind the Casa de la Cultura, and it is thought that vandals took it. There have been events of vandalism in the colonias, which are considered as a challenge to authorities.(Previously, when it was thought that letters were stolen, it turned out that they were in the custody of City officials after coming loose due to rust.)

Cold Front #12 at the island   

Frente frío No. 12 sobre la isla

    Isla Mujeres is feeling the effects of Cold Front #12 which are expected to be mild on Tuesday morning, and then to strengthen in the afternoon, which would affect recreational tourism. It is expected to be the second strongest cold front so far this fall. One forecast predicts gusts of wind up to 50 km/hr on Wednesday, and the weather should improve on Thursday. The Harbor Master doesn't expect to close the port to small boats, but will reevaluate after midday. Fishing and nautical tourism were normal on Monday and expected to be unaffected on Monday morning. 

Cutting mangroves at the base of the pier

   Recently, mangrove bushes have been cleared from the base of the concrete pier south of the car ferry pier. The property hasn't been used in more than two decades, and the state Port Authority (APIQRoo) is in the process of legally recovering it. During the administration of former governor Borge, the property was assigned to a private individual. The Port Authority has plans for renovating the pier so that it can be used by visiting boats.
     Some weeks ago, mangrove plants were removed from the parking lot of the ferry terminal. It is noted that cutting of mangroves is common on private and public properties, with large areas having been removed from areas in Sac Bajo and the Makax lagoon. Mangroves are protected by SEMARNAT and it is questioned whether federal permission was obtained for this recent removal.
