In the wake of a series of arrests, primarily in San Carlos, earlier this month, La Prensa reports that at least seven people have been charged in connection with a series of armed robberies of homes and businesses over the past year.
One of the few details that have been reported was something always suspected: this gang operated with inside information about their victims.
So, are you a foreigner thinking about moving to Panama? If conspicuous consumption is the whole reason for your existence, think again. You do not want to draw attention to what valuable things you have. Nor do you want to be all that trusting with people who clean your house, tend your garden, guard your gated community or conduct financial business with you — being inconspicuous and a bit mysterious gives you a measure of protection.
