Judicial investigators detained a man Monday in Cartago to face allegations he was the school kid bandit who stuck up youngsters in Guadalupe.
The detention was in part due to the media publication of a photo of the robbery suspect.
The man is 22 and accused of aggravated robbery. Agents said that there are at least nine victims who were confronted by a robber in February and March. The robber threatened the youngsters with a firearm in order to steal their possessions, said agents. The crimes took place between noon and 2 p.m.
