Jacó raid finds pair suspected in store stickup

Agents detained three persons in Jacó Thursday when they raided a cabina in the center of town in a robbery investigation.

In Desamparados other agents detained a man who is suspected of being the robber who shot a woman clerk in a supermarket stickup in December. The security video of the man shooting the store clerk seemingly without reason was a popular presentation on local television, and the suspect was identified because of the footage.

The raid in Jacó netted a 16 year old and a man, 23, in the stickup of the Soda Nenita in Barrio Camboya of that community. Agents also found a man with the last names of Herrera Salas, who was facing an open charge of theft in Puntareans, they said.

The supermarket shooting was in Santo Domingo de Herredia, and the raid Thursday was in Los Guidos de Desamparados. The woman has recovered from the bullet wound she received in the stomach after she complied with the man’s demands. Agents said they confiscated a .38 caliber handgun. The search continues for a second man seen in the background of the video.
