Suspects from San Ramón detained at Sarchí roadblock

Two men suspected of sticking up a jewelry store owner in San Ramón Tuesday were caught by police at a roadblock in Sarchí.

The bandits took 14 million colons, about $28,000 that the store owner had just withdrawn from the bank. The bandits pulled up in a motorcycle as the man and a son were driving from the bank some 600 meters to the store, said the Judicial Investigating Organization.

The stickup took place just outside the store, and another relative of the store owner who had been inside the shop suffered a superficial wound from a gun used by the bandits, judicial police said.

The Judicial Investigating Organization said that all the money and a gun were recovered at the roadblock.
