A worker at the Consejo de Seguridad Víal was detained Wednesday morning by agents from the Judicial Investigation Organization on suspicion of information fraud, identity fraud, and the use of false documents. Agents also arrested another man and two women thought to have paid money in exchange for falsified documents.
The worker for the road safety agency was arrested at his house in Desamparados where a raid and subsequent confiscation allowed investigators to come upon critical evidence, they said. The other three suspects were detained at their homes throughout the Central Valley.
Investigators found that the worker had compiled and put into the agency computers fake medical reports, dictámenes médicos, that are required for getting a license.
The four suspects were presented to prosecutors on Wednesday.
