A Canadian tourist in Playa Grande, Guanacaste, became the victim of a thief Wednesday, but Fuerza Pública officers were able to detain a suspect and recover the items the woman lost.
Police attributed the theft to the fact that the woman was not keeping an eye on her possessions.
The officers involved were members of the Policía Turistica. The suspect was identified by the last name of Siles, said police.
Recovered was a GPS device, credit cards and a personal music player.
