The robbers – who were hooded, to hide their identity, and wore gloves to avoid leaving fingerprints – fled running in the direction of Virgen de la Vega.
The National Police were alerted by the alarm centre: their cameras detected what was happening inside the bank and issued a warning. This is why police officers were quickly mobilised to the centrally located avenue to deal with the case.
The case has been taken over by the Robbery Group of the National Police Headquarters of the Region of Murcia, which hopes to find the perpetrators shortly, to bring them to justice for robbery with violence.
Professionals from the Scientific Police went to the bank to try to find traces of the robbery to help identify the three individuals. Although they were wearing gloves to avoid leaving fingerprints. The viewing of the security cameras will also be key to clarifying the case.
