Two arrested in connection with advance-fee scam, money laundering

February 14th, 2014 (ISH) Two suspects were arrested by Judicial Investigation Police officers (OIJ) in connection with a million-dollar money-laundering scheme, following raids on three residences and an office in the city of Escazú on Feb. 11.

The suspects allegedly called people residing in the United States to tell them they could claim prizes after depositing U.S. currency in Costa Rican bank accounts. The suspects then allegedly laundered the money through two businesses.

Police found a makeshift call center in one of the residences, as well as four guns and US$24,000 in cash.
