Judicial agents said they think that some members of a suspected drug gang who were detained recently have links to the Sinaloa drug cartel in México.
The arrests began a week ago and continued with raids on three more homes in San Isidro de Heredia Tuesday and Wednesday. One person was detained, said the Judicial Investigating Organization.
Agents said that the drug ring began operating here three years ago and lived an expensive lifestyle paying $2,000 or more a month to rent homes.
Among those who were arrested were Costa Ricans and Colombians as well as the two Mexicans, agents noted.
In the most recent raids, firearms and a silencer were located as were 217 packages of marijuana, said the judicial agency.
