7820_620On Monday, an alumnus of a Dutch secondary school in Leiden threatened to shoot up the school. Thanks to computer experts and officials of the city of Leiden, they were able to determine that the computer used by the suspect was located in Costa Rica.

The investigation into the threat led the Royal Dutch Polie to contact the Organismo de Investigacion Judical (OIJ) in Costa Rica.

Based on the IP information, it led OIJ officials to a hostel in Sabana Este, who were able to confirm the identity of the suspest and that he had been a guest at the hostel for several months.

Meanwhile, officials in Leiden lowered their alert level based on the OIJ information, re-opening the school after Monday’s closure.

Accordig to Dirección General de Migración y Extranjería (Costa Rica’s immigration service), the young man arrived in Costa Rica last September, visited Nicaragua in January, returning to Costa Rica on April 15.

The hostel manager told the OIJ that the young man had left for Puerto Viejo de Limón days before. But, that didn’t detract Costa Rican officials in their intent to find the man.

It was around 5:30pm Thursday when the OIJ was able to locate the man seeking refuge in the Dutch Embassy in San José.
