No prosecution for tool thief

Dear A.M. Costa Rica:

I spent three months in Costa Rica, and I am very disappointed with the law system. My friend got robbed of all his tools. We caught the thug on the spot and called the cops. They came in a heart beat. They question the fellow, and he said that part of the tools were at a pawn shop. We went with the cops and the thief, got the tools as evidence, and we went to the court to meet the prosecutor. She said that it was not enough evidence and was the guy’s first time, and next day he was on the loose..and he stole more than $1,000. That is Costa Rica. Pura vida, a very pitiful slogan !!!
