Costa Rica News – Although the Costa Rican government wants to keep it quiet, crimes are being committed in order to meet basic needs in life for the thieves. More people are stealing in Costa Rica because of lack of good salary jobs and the fact that the cost of living in Costa Rica is getting to be higher than the base salaries for most Costa Ricans.
During those 30 months, 985 attacks were perpetrated homes in San José, Alajuela, Alajuela, Limon, Cartago, Pococí, Heredia, Goicoechea, Puntarenas, La Union, Curridabat, Perez Zeledon and Siquirres.
In 80% of those attacks on homes guns were used. The Judicial Police have arrested 214 suspects since 2010.
This fact that there have been 1805 registered home raids in this time period which is a greatly increased number than in the past is not a good sign.
This is for several reasons:
1. The salaries in Costa Rica are not keeping up with the increased cost of living in the country
2. Theft and robberies are not really being combated and it seems that theft is becoming a way of life in CR
3. The Costa Rican Government is not thinking of their country when making decisions for example the increases in Riteve, Marchamo, and taxes
Costa Rica is on a negative path right now and unless the current government can pull it out of its downward spiral it is going to crash and burn.
