Mall San Pedro: No Security Cameras?

mall-san-pedroEl Chamuko who runs the blog “El Infierno en Costa Rica” warns visitors to Mall San Pedro since many parts of the enclosed mall has no security cameras and one can easily become a victim.

The notice comes from several notes sent to El Chamuko of victims in of all places, the food court.

Of the complaints filed with the Organismo de Investigación Judicial (OIJ) they tell the story of strangers bumping into patrons of the food court and in the confusion makes away with a purse or other belongings. In once case, a woman complained of being groped.

Problems with a computer hard drive rendering the cameras usless was the excuse given by mall management, meaning investigators had no way of retrieving footage of the incident.

Worse yet, according to Mary Picado, one of the victims writing to El Chamuko, said the mall security showed “a lack of responsibility and interest…”

Cell phones, purses, bags full of purchases are targets of anti-socials who seem to know the “camera situation” at the mall.

Another complaint by visitors to the San Pedro mall is the lack visible security guards. At times there seems to be patrols, while at other times there are no security guards in sight for long periods of time.

Although this note may be a little late for the holiday shopping season, since there is no word that the camera problem is fixed, best to keep an eye on your surroundings to not fall victim of an attack. Or better yet, avoid going to the San Pedro mall. There are other options.
