Judicial police are trying to find the owners of a number of items believed stolen by a house burglar in Guanacaste.

The loot comes from an estimated 100 break-ins, mainly in Liberia, Cañas, Nicoya and Santa Cruz. The man was detained last week at his home in Guayabo de Bagaces after agents said they followed him to witness a break-in.

Those who have suffered a burglary can view the items at the Judicial Investigating Organization offices in Liberia. Agents suggest that victims bring facturas or invoices if they can.

The items include all sorts of computers, iPods, cell telephones, Play Station devices, household appliances, as well as at least 100 rings, watches and bracelets.

The man appears to have worked alone and approached homes on the pretext of selling books. If no one answered the door, he would break in, agents said.
