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."

And who had even heard about this woman before the crash? Yes, it's sad when anyone dies, but this coverage is waaaay overdone.

You'd think even the most jaded people would have some kind of respect in the face of such awful death but those guys were just soulless thieves. I can't help but wish that those who perished are at peace, but I also wish that they visit those vile thieves every time they close their eyes.

Wow how hypocritical of you to call out mexican police as crooked yet say nothing about the bull**** and atrocities your own police force commits across the country. Racism at it's finest.

I believe there is a simple mixup.... There are 2 cops in Mexico that ARE NOT corrupt. Minor mistake, it happens.....

Hispanic Illegal immigrants are ruining America’s culture and prominence, take a look around LA, it’s a dump. What happens when all the Mexicans from Mexico come to the US??? Then the US becomes Mexico, how’s that working out? How’s Mexico doing these days? Only 58,000 people killed in Mexico during the last presidents term..

People when you steal from a dead celebrity, DO NOT put the item on Ebay

I guess a thief doesn't discriminate when they see an opportunity. They probably made a fortune on the pictures too. I think there is a special place in hell for persons with such blackened hearts.

There's unfortunately always someone trying to capitalize on the misery of others. Just a disgusting facet of human nature, sometimes. For the record, Mexican authorities are notoriously corrupt, it has nothing to do with their race...it has everything to do with the drug cartels that control them, which is also sad. I feel genuinely terrible for her family and fans that have to see things like this.
