Following the raid that began at 3:00am Tuesday, authorities confirmed the arrest of the ringleader of the group, detained in Nicaragua and being transferred to Costa Rica.

According to the investigation that was ongoing for more than a year, the gang was alleged to have moved drugs to and from Costa Rica and related to a drug war that has claimed more than 70 lines, most of them in Desamparados, on the south side of San José.

Control for territory and the lucrative drug market was the motive for many of the multiple killings between drug gangs.
