14 police officers accused in trial over drug robberies

A trial continues today in the Tribunal de Juicio de Goicoechea for 14 Fuerza Pública officers who are accused of comprising a band that robbed drugs.

The officers are all from the San José area but from different police stations. They were detained in February 2011 in a sweep by judicial police, anti-drug agents and prosecutors.

The allegations are that the police officers preyed on drug traffickers and even invaded homes to take money and drugs.
