This is the first raid of the year.  On September 13 of last year, the PCD dismantled the largest of the laboratories of this type found so far, in a remote mountainous area of Puriscal, resulting in the arrest of an American surnamed Lewis, and an accomplice, who allegedly supplied the tourist sectors from Quepos to Jacó.
