Response time of police is measured in hours

Magistrate is theft victim…….. I say boo hoo, I’m sure the bad guy gets prison time. I wonder if it took the cops eight hours to get to the crime scene here. I bet not.

Judicial investigators have said they were hampered because the finca where the death happened is some distance from Puerto Jiménez, the local commercial center. Investigators did not reach the scene until 4 p.m. Wednesday, the day the body was discovered. My wife and I lived on the beach in Puntarenas and we were robbed over 15 times on our property and inside our home, We were hit at 1 p.m. Jan. 8 when the earthquake hit and it took the O.I.J until 11 p.m. that night to drive five miles to our house. My neighbor, five houses up the street was robbed while sleeping and also hit 22 times in one month.
