Traffic officer held over repo job

A traffic officer has been accused of acting illegally as a repo man.

The Judicial Investigating Organization detained the 61-year-old man on the allegation of abusing authority.

The judicial agency said the traffic officer accompanied another man as they tried to repossess a bus in Turrialba. The owner of the bus was behind on payments, the agency said. But the men did not have any judicial order allowing them to take the vehicle, the agency said.

The traffic officer was on his day off, the agency said. He was detained Monday while working on the autopista Florencio del Castillo.
