Two men invaded a home in Cóbano about 9 a.m. Monday, tied up the couple there, ransacked the place and fled on a stolen motorcycle. Just 10 minutes later the stolen motorcycle suffered mechanical problems, and one of the bandits fled into the mountains. A second man, identified as a 24 year old, was detained.
The home invasion was in Santa Teresa de Cobano. The Judicial Investigating Organization said that the bandits took jewelery ad cash as well as the defective motorcycle. They threatened the couple after they tied them up then they pistol-whipped them, agents said.
