The Organismo de Investigación Judicial (OIJ) confirms that agents of the Crimes Section against Physical Integrity and Transit located and identified the man, whose lawyer, told the press that the detention was made while his client was on his way to hand himself over to police.

“We went for him and when we were en route, already arriving at the courts, came a contingent of OIJ agents, and where they stopped us and there he got out of the car and they took him in,” Carlos Alberto Chinchilla Sandí told La Nacion.
