Members of the Policía de Fronteras in Sarapiquí captured four home invasion suspects Tuesday night after bandits forced their way into a home in Finca 2 de Río Frío, threatened those living there and took 1 million colons, about $2,000.
The bandits fled on two motorcycles about 9 p.m.. Police intercepted the four men on a public highway about a half hour later. They said they recovered cash and confiscated a .22-caliber revolver.
Police identified the four by the last names of Omares Quirós, Solano Solís, Durán Ramírez and Miranda Hernández. They said that Miranda had been in court before to answer robbery allegations.
