Judicial police raided a home in San Rafael Abajo de Desamparados Thursday to capture a suspect in the robbery of a beauty parlor.

Agents said they found two firearms and marijuana and detained a man, 22.

Four men stuck up employees and patrons of the beauty parlor in San Pedro de Montes de Oca in May. The arrest Thursday was the first in the case.

During the robbery crooks not only took money but a television, other appliances and sound equipment, agents said.
