Four judicial agents are facing charges because they turned a road trip into a fiesta, according to the agency.
The four were assigned to go to Guápiles July 22 to detain a suspect. When they arrived, according to the Poder Judicial, they delayed making the arrest and engaged in personal activities, according to the announcement of the case.
Consequently they ran up overtime and spent the night in a hotel, said the agency. They did not make the arrest until the following day, the agency said. The men are assigned to the section that investigates murders, said the agency.
The criminal allegations stem from the men filing reports that the Poder Judicial considers to be deliberately incorrect and also personal enrichment. The case appears to involve additional similar events.
