Anyone interested in the efficiency of the court system need only ask a man with the last name of Briceño. He was detained for robbery for his 27th time Monday afternoon.
The Fuerza Pública said that a police patrol just happened to be passing by when the man got off a San José-Heredia bus. The driver alerted police to a stickup.
Officers reported that a man pulled a gun on the driver and took 22,000 colons, about $42, and also relieved passengers of cell telephones. Police said they recovered the cell phones from the suspect.
All the arrests of the 34-year-old man have been for various types of robberies.
