Police officers encountered an abandoned stash of weapons Wednesday when they re-entered a property that they had cleared Tuesday.

Found were three 9-millimeter automatics, two rifles, and two shotguns along with appropriate ammunition.

The location was a place called La Finca del Alemán in San Francisco de Cartago. The property is next to the Hotel Río
Perlas, said the Ministerio de Gobernación, Policía y Seguridad Pública.

The ministry’s Grupo de Apoyo Operacional in Cartago showed up Tuesday to perform an eviction, but no one was there. The property appears to have been lost because an owner defaulted on a loan. At that time police said they found one weapon.

However, the individuals who recovered the property called police back Wednesday to show them the stash of weapons that had been encountered.
