Aguadilla, Puerto Rico - On Friday, Olga Tañon, a Puerto Rican Merengue style singer denounced that an organized criminal operation at the Aguadilla Airport in the island of Puerto Rico has been involved in stealing food donations. Hispanic News Network U.S.A. (HNNUSA) has also learned that other organized criminal groups have been doing the same thing concerning stolen food donations in other parts of Puerto Rico.  According to Tañon and other reports, large loads of relief aid consisting of food, water and other items in donations have been stolen from the airport warehouse. An employee at the Aguadilla notified Tañon and other groups that have been donating items and food including water that their supplies are being stolen by an organized criminal element. 
Tañon in a Facebook video called for local and federal authorities to investigate and stop such crimes against the people of Puerto Rico. Don Omar, another singer has also claimed that loads of food donations have disappeared and unaccounted for 
from the Aguadilla Airport.
Also, reports that packages send through mail to Puerto Rico are being opened and items stolen.
Apparently, stealing food donations and selling them on the black market had become a lucrative business for criminal organzations and corrupt officials.
