CSSN News- July 18, 2019 – Recent events in Panama

CSSN NewsCSSN has just issued a firsthand ALERT, describing an armed robbery that occurred In Bahia Nombre de Dios on July 13, 2019. Earlier, a similar armed robbery event had occurred in Linton Bay (July 11, 2019). Both robbery reports are now firsthand as victims were able to regain communications and work with us to complete their reports. A third incident of attempted theft, also on July 13, 2019, also in Linton Bay has  been recently published.

Unfortunately, a few ALERTS were distributed about the second robbery, while it was in (preliminary) secondhand status. The current firsthand report replaces it in its entirety. The CSSN team apologizes for any confusion that occurred.
