Investigators are trying to figure out exactly what three men were doing when they were working on an electrical meter in Villas de Ayarco, Cartago.
A woman said that she called for an electrician, but three men arrived in a white truck that bore a sign of the Compañía Nacional de Fuerza y Luz. They began to work on the home’s electrical meter in the garage, said police.
When officers arrived they said they found that two of the men had criminal records and that a bag they carried contained firearms. One of the weapons had its serial number obliterated.
Police speculated that the men were trying in some way to rig the meter to steal electricity, but exactly how is still unknown.
