How much is a cell worth? $100? $200? $200? A life?

Apparently, a life is a what it cost man Monday night, who was killed in a robbery in Calle Lomas, in San Rafael Arriba de Desamparados. Police report that 45 year old Max Beita was shot in the chest with the intent of robbing of his cell phone.

The Organismo de Investigación Judicial (OIJ) is investigating, but have little hope of catching up with the assailant or assailants who fled the scene on a motorcycle.

In an unrelated, after the showing a video on the local news channels, police caught up with a man that shot an eight month pregnant women during a robbery of a grocery store, Friday night, in Guayabos de Curridabat.

However, for lack of evidence tying him to the scene of the crime, they had to let him go. A second suspected is also being sought.

Fortunately, this time, the 22 year old woman (whose identity has been withheld from the public) is recovering, but in intensive care at the Calderón Guardia hospital, while the newborn, who suffered suffered a small nick while in the mother’s womb, is recovering at the Hospital de Niños (Chidlren’s hospital).

Editor’s Note. The Q does not habitually report these types of crimes. However, these two cases struck a sensitive nerve. In both cases it appears excessive violence was used and the inability of the authorities to catch the responsible and when the do, lack the tools to hold them. December is traditionally a violent month in Costa Rica.
