Fuerza Pública officers in Upala, Alajuela, managed to capture four home invasion suspects Tuesday morning after armed robbers forced their way through the front door of a home and made off with 2 millions colons (about $4,000), jewels and lottery tickets. The home invasion took place in Barrio Los Angeles in the northern Costa Rican town.
All of the suspects are from San José. They were stopped in their vehicle in the center of town, said the Fuerza Pública. They identified the men by the last names of Céspedes Forbes, Arguedas Arias, Mejías Sáenz and Rivas Castellón.
