A couple was arrested as suspects of the crime of proxenetismo (pimping) women in a house located in the upscale community of Pinares de Curridabat, in the east side of San Jose.

According to the Organismo de Investigación Judicial (OIJ), on a confidential tip, they raided the house where the couple used the services of up to 11 women to offer clients sexual services, for which they charged around ¢30,000 colones (US$50) for up to one hour. The women then paid the “house” their cut.

The OIJ believe the house full of women of ill repute (hookers) operated since the middle of 2018.
