Driving examiners told to stay off job for probe

The undercover judicial police operation seeking driving examiners who took money has netted a total of seven.

The Poder Judicial identified them by the last names of Recia Chinchilla, Cubillo Guzmán, Céspedes Sandí, Rodríguez Camacho, Guerrero Mora, Torres Torres and Calderón Chinchilla. They were arrested Tuesday.

Five were detained at the Dirección General de Educación Vial in Paso Ancho where driving tests are administered. Two were detained at their homes, agents said.

They work for the Sección Especializada de Tránsito in the Ministerio de Obras Públicas y Transportes.

A judge ordered Wednesday that they be separated from their jobs for six months while the investigation continues. They were jailed briefly.
