A man suspected of smuggling immigrants into the country is now in the hands of the Fuerza Pública. The arrest occurred over the weekend at the Peñas Blancas border when the Nicaraguan man with the last names Sosa Valdivia tried to usher two immigrants into Costa Rica, said police.
He charged a pair of Nicaraguans 10,000 colons for bringing them into the country, according to a police report. They were later sent to authorities from immigration.
This marks the second arrest this year of an intermediary bringing Nicaraguan immigrants across the border, said the Fuerza Pública..
