Suspected fraudster is getting a ride to jail

The immigration police arrested a man Wednesday on allegations that he offered services to obtain fake residency documents.

The suspect, who has the last names of González Sanabria, is being accused of giving out false cédulas. It is estimated he made 200,000 colons a transaction from his work, said immigration agents.

Investigators began looking into the case after a mother asked about the authenticity of a document she received and officials found it was false, a release from immigration said.

González’s arrest was coordinated with the fraud unit. Police transferred him to the Ministerio Público.
