Two Mexican police officers have been ARRESTED -- after officials say they stole items from the Jenni Rivera plane crash site.

According to government officials, at least one of the cops is suspected of leaking crash scene photographs to the media ... including shots of body parts and personal documents.

Officials say investigators searched the homes of the alleged crooked cops ... and found items belonging to some of the victims.

One of the cops is 23 years old ... the other is 24.

Corrupt cops in Mexico? Who'da thunk it.

11:20 AM PT -- A rep for the Mexican Consulate in L.A. tells TMZ ... "We have over 2,000,000 police officers [in Mexico], and unfortunately some of these officers have been corrupt in the past, but we cannot generalize that the whole force is corrupt."

The rep adds, "Mexico has been working very hard to make their citizens and tourists safe, however it is not fair to judge the whole tree based upon a few bad apples."

The Federales are a sanctioned crime organization specially skilled in gringo shakedowns. The entire country is a soup sandwich at this point, I'm surprised the USA hasn't simply taken it over for new manufacturing territory.

Just another example of how Mexico is such a failure and lawless country. Can someone please explain to me why Mexico is so great?

When I first heard the plane crash occurred in Mexico, my first thought was that "they would rob the dead." How correct I was, but definitely NOT surprised. They probably stole Jenni's jewelry off of her body, if, in fact, her body was in tact.

No, the who'd a thunk is that they actually got arrested for it. Things must be a-changing in Mejico.

Hmmm.... I am not "shocked" that this happened in Mexico , and frankly I do not understand why anyone else is, except racism, It could of and has happened elsewhere, everyone wants something from someone 'famous' ...... what could they do but brag about it. You fools should worry more about the fact that illegal Marijuana somehow gets across the US Border at the point of entry???? And then is conveniently found later in the the U.S. by our Border Patrol, now the question is why didn't the fools (U.S.) find it before it came across, sitting on your hands much.
I actually wanted to write how sorry I was to her family and those others on the plane, if indeed they read this 'stuff'.
