Alleged narco-trafficking gang dismantled

May 23rd, 2014 (ISH) Costa Rican Drug Control Police (PCD) officers arrested nine suspects whose gang allegedly trafficked narcotics from the Central American nation to Europe, Public Security Minister Celso Gamboa said on May 20.

The arrests of six Costa Ricans, a Colombian, a Dominican and an Israeli occurred during simultaneous operations in the provinces of Alajuela, Limón, Puntarenas and San José.

PCD officers discovered a hydroponics lab with 70 marijuana plants and 15,621 doses of LSD in a beach residence in Jacó that’s allegedly owned by the Israeli suspect.

The six Costa Ricans have been identified as Víquez Ramírez, Miranda Campos, Montero Picado, Rojas Guzmán, Guzmán Picado and Rose Mitshore, while police identified the other suspects by their last names.

Three other alleged members of the gang were taken into custody in Limón on May 16, when police confiscated 778 kilograms of cocaine, three firearms and nearly US$600,000.
