A lone gunman on a motorcycle stuck up employees at a jewelry store in a Lindora de Santa Ana commercial center around lunchtime Tuesday and made off with an estimated $200,000 in loot, said the Judicial Investigating Organization.
The man wore a motorcycle helmet with the visor down and gloves, said agents.
In a similar incident two men were held up by a pair of bandits who traveled on a motorcycle about 9 p.m. Monday. One victim suffered a gunshot wound in the knee and his companion was hit on the head with a gun, agents said. The robbery was in Concepción de Arriba de Alajuelita when the two men were walking along a public road, agents said.
Another man suffered a bullet wound in Patarrá in the southeast metro area when three bandits stuck up the store where he was working. That was at 7 p.m. Monday. The victim was shot in the leg.
