Masked men stick up casino at Jacó hotel

Fuerza Pública officers said Tuesday that they managed to capture two of five persons who invaded and stuck up a casino in Jacó.

The details were sketchy, and there was no report on which of the casinos in hotels at the central Pacific beach community was the target.

Officers did say that the hotel staff immediately contacted police. The report said that five masked men, at least one with a firearm, entered, threatened workers and customers there and put some in a closed storage room.

The men also took computers, billfolds, cash and cell telephones from customers, said the Fuerza Pública.

Police said the men fled in a vehicle that resembled a red taxi. A vehicle matching that description was stopped in Pozón de Orotina where the two men were taken into custody.
