Third suspect in Grecia invasions held

Authorities say they detained the last member of a gang that is thought to have invaded at least three houses in Grecia. Agents from the Judicial Investigating Organization detained 26-year-old Jaison Prado Guerrero at a home in Hatillo 6 Monday.

At the residence they said they found jewelry, around $300 cash, watches, and cell phones believed to be stolen from the Grecia homes. The investigation began in February after robbery complaints. One month ago police also arrested two other suspects, Adrian Vargas Durán and Jaison Arturo Pincay Montero.

An organization press representative said Tuesday that the suspects would enter homes with their guns out and threaten the residents to hand over their valuables. He said they are also believed to have stolen cars in the Grecia area.
