Agents of the Judicial Investigating Organization arrested two traffic police officers Monday on suspicions of breach of duty.
According to a preliminary report, the incident happened on Jan. 29, 2016, when both officers arrived to the scene of a traffic accident in Tibás. It occurred that one of the cars involved did not have an insurance policy and thus required the issuance of a ticket, according to investigators. The report alleges that the suspects allowed the owner to purchase a policy in order to cover the cost of the accident.
Judicial agents received a confidential tip of this incident and arrested the two officers involved near Plaza Vízquez in San José.
