Fuerza Publica officers have detained the second suspect in the murder of a bus driver. The arrest took place about 6:25 p.m. Wednesday in Los Sitios de Moravia.
The 20-year-old man who has the last name of Mayorga will be accused of killing the driver in a robbery Tuesday afternoon. That was near La Milpa, Heredia. Police managed to capture a 16-year-old suspect Tuesday afternoon as the climax of a massive search.
The Fuerza Pública said the older suspect was caught in the vicinity of a home occupied by family members.
Judicial agents said they conducted a search of a home in la Milpa earlier Wednesday and located evidence.
Police said the man detained Wednesday night had a juvenile criminal record.
Judicial agents identified the dead driver by the last name of Ureña. They gave a different name Tuesday shortly after the killing.
The robbers got away with the sponge typical of buses where the driver has carved out indentations to hold change.
