Hijack suspect, 36, detained and some cargo is recovered

Judicial police have detained one man and recovered a container that had been hijacked.

The Judicial Investigating Organization said that the container originally held 1,500 flat screen televisions. Agents said they recovered 420.

The truck driver was confronted by hijackers Nov. 28 on Ruta 323 while transporting the flat screens to San José from Limón, agents said. The driver was held captive until the crooks disconnected the cab from the trailer. Then they abandoned the cab and the driver, agents said.

The 36-year-old man was detained in Sagrada Familia where the container also was located.  Agents said they were seeking more suspects.
