Investigators have detained four men as suspects in home invasions in San José and places nearby.
They were detained as they were transporting what agents say was the loot from a home invasion in Santa Cecilia de Heredia to a home of one of the suspects in Moravia, said the Judicial Investigating Organization.
Among those detained was a man who is suspected of being the purchaser of items taken in such crimes. Agents said they also confiscated weapons, radios and gloves, all believed linked to the crimes.
In an unrelated case, agents also detained Friday a man at a home in Hatillo 8 suspected of being one of two persons who participated in a robbery at a home in the same area. The men invaded a home occupied by three young women and took portable computers.
The victims were able to identify the man, agents said.
