Cancun International Airport has a department that receives and monitors the items found in it. These items are usually returned to their owners. The security department that is responsible for this work is an independent entity, which has its own processes and policies. Due to the nature of this department, it has its own restrictions.
When items are not reported, some times others passenger find them and seize them.
In order to preserve all items are returned and avoid misunderstandings, Cancun Airport verifies that its staff is free of possessions at the entrance and exit of their work activities.
