Two men in Ticabán are wishing they were never born today, after getting a generous taste of vigilante justice served up by their neighbors. The two men, who are accused of stealing yuca from a local farm, were treated to free black eyes and custom paint jobs by a few of their more artistic neighbors in the rural town of Ticabán, Limon.

The accused men refused to comment, most likely due to having tape over their mouths

According to sources, the situation came to a head after the Fuerza Publica failed to react to a recent string of tuber thefts that were attributed to the two-man gang, known locally as “Los Paquillos”.

At the time of this publication it is still unclear as to how the pair plan on getting the paint off their penises, but The Costa Rica Post will keep its readers updated as more information becomes available.
