Hijackers make off with container of bikes

Crooks have made off with a shipping container full of bicycles, said the Judicial Investigating Organization.

The robbery took place in San Juan de San Ramón where gunmen confronted the driver of a truck as he dismounted from the cab at his home, agents said they were told. That was about 1 a.m. Tuesday.

The man told agents he was tied up and put in the cab sleeping compartment while the crooks drove around.

He and the cab were abandoned in Santa Rosa de Santo Domingo en Heredia about 6 a.m., but the trailer and container were missing, agents reported.
