Despite a strong police presence, the downtown bandits are at it again.
Judicial agents said that three men with guns entered a store on Avenida Central at 2 p.m. Wednesday and held up the clerk and the only customer there.
The Judicial Investigating Organization said the men got 1 million colons, about $2,000.
Fuerza Pública officers have been deployed specifically to halt these daylight store robberies that have been going on for at least four months. San José also has its municipal police force that regularly patrol Avenida Central, the main street of the downtown shopping district.
