Three National Police officers in front of the bank branch where a robbery took place on Tuesday.Three robbers held up a Banco Santander bank office on Avenida Juan Carlos I in Murcia at around two o’clock on Tuesday afternoon. After tying up the employees and locking them in a room, they made off with the loot and fled, leaving the workers tied up, police sources confirmed. Fortunately, no one was injured.
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.
