(QCOSTARICA) Motivated to steal the vehicle, assailants shot a U.S. man outside his home in Pozos de Santa Ana, in an apparent carjacking (bajonazo in Spanish).

The American, identified by his last name Morehead, was arriving at his home on Thursday night, around 10:00pm, when he was confronted by the group of suspects and was shot by one of them. He was taken to the San Juan de Dios hospital where he received medical attention to his non-life threatening wound.

Tracking the vehicle by GPS, on Friday, Organismo de Investigación Judicial (OIJ) agents raided a warehouse in San Antonio de Desamparados, where they found the vehicle, as well as another stolen vehicle, license plates, body parts, engines and crates of bootleg liquor.

Arrested was a 37-year-old man identified by his last name Arce, who does not have a criminal record.

The director of the Fuerza Pública de San José (police), Francisco Cordero, said the compound was made up of several warehouses, in one they found a liquor-making facility.
