Beatle Bar Manager Booted for 2nd Time

April 4, 2008

Authorities have deported a Jacó bar manager and U.S. citizen for the second time in three years.

Bryan Mitchell Morgan, 46, the manager of the Beatle Bar, a well known bar frequented by prostitutes, was deported March 29 after authorities allegedly discovered he was using a fake cédula, or national ID card.

Immigration Police Chief Francisco Castaing said Morgan was first deported on Oct. 23, 2006, after overstaying his visa.

The chief said Morgan re-entered the country using false documents via Peñas Blancas on the Nicaraguan border.

Instead of prosecuting Morgan on misdemeanor charges of using false documents, authorities decided to deport him.

“It makes more sense for us to deport him than prosecute him because while (suspects) are awaiting trial, they can marry a Tica and get legal protection from deportation,” Castaing said.
