Trio held following San Pedro stickups

Police Wednesday managed to track down three robbery suspects to Hatillo 2. They were spotted because the Fuerza Pública had a description of their vehicle.

They are suspected of being the men who systematically threatened and robbed persons waiting at various bus stops in San Pedro. Police said there may be five separate cases involved. The suspects, when detained, had an unregistered firearm and a butcher knife.

Those waiting in bus shelters are easy targets, in some cases the robbers do not even get out of their car.
