A Pérez Zeledón merchant has been detained on suspicion of being involved in a money laundering operation, according to the Judicial Investigating Organization.
The 34-year-old man who was not identified immediately, ruins a fruit and vegetable business. Agents detained him at 6 a.m. Thursday as he left his home.
The agency said that the man over four years banked some $200,000 in colons that do not seem to be the result of his business. Agents said they have been investigating the case for four years.
