Robbers caught by top cops quickly admit their guilt

Two armed robbers accepted what amounts to a plea deal and ended up tried, convicted and sentenced in less than 24 hours.

These are the two men who the director general and deputy director general of the Fuerza Pública apprehended Wednesday around noon when the two men appeared to be driving recklessly with a motorcycle on the Circunvalación.

Investigators have now linked them to the robbery of a bank customer Wednesday morning in San Pedro.

The Poder Judicial said that the two men, both Colombians, accepted an abbreviated judicial process. One who has the last names of Ayala Ortega got four years and eight months in prison. His associate, identified by the last names of Palacio Berrios, got three years and eight months.

Ayala got more time because he offered Juan José Andrade Morales, director general of the Fuerza Pública, $1,000 to let him and his associate go. He also was charged with carrying a firearm.
