In a series of early morning raids this Thursday, in 17 different locations in Alajuelita, Desamparados, Guapiles and various points in Guanacaste, the Organismo de Investigación Judicial (OIJ) detained the (arrested) eight police officials.

The gang is made up of other members that have yet to be identified. “Among the detained are several officers of the Administrative Police,” confirmed Marisel Rodriguez, head of the OIJ press office.

Security Minister Gustavo Mata said his ministry has cooperated with the OIJ in providing “important evidence to the investigation” and that the eight officers will be dismissed.

“We are ready to fire them, the process is already underway,” said Mata.
