A gang dedicated to committing robberies with great violence is dismantled in Almeria

The Guardia Civil has arrested three people.

The Guardia Civil has dismantled a criminal organisation dedicated to committing robberies with great violence and intimidation. Three people have been arrested as alleged perpetrators of the crimes of robbery with violence and intimidation with a firearm in a games room in Roquetas de Mar.

Beginning of the operation

This investigation began last May when the Guardia Civil became aware of a robbery with violence in a games room located in the municipality of Roquetas de Mar.

Thanks to the collaboration of citizens, the agents in charge of the investigation were able to learn that the alleged perpetrators used a replica of an assault submachine gun, similar to those used by the Security Forces and Corps, to carry out the robberies. They entered the premises in a violent manner, intimidating the customers, even assaulting one of the workers, forced several gaming machines and fled in a vehicle parked nearby.

As a result of the visual inspection carried out and the analysis of all the evidence collected, it was possible to identify, locate and arrest one of the alleged perpetrators and another person as a necessary collaborator of the events.

At the same time as these arrests, the Guardia Civil located the vehicle used to commit the robbery, driven by another of those arrested, who was using false documentation at the time of his identification. After carrying out the corresponding inspection of the vehicle, the agents located the submachine gun used in the robbery.

As a result of the investigation, this criminal organisation dedicated to committing robberies with great violence in Almería has been completely dismantled.

The Guardia Civil de la Comandancia de Almería thanks and reminds us of the importance of citizen collaboration for the prompt and effective resolution of this type of crime.

There is a permanent hotline (062, web “www.guardiacivil.es” and the application “Alertcops” at the service of citizens).

The proceedings, together with the detainees, have been handed over to the Court of First Instance of Roquetas de Mar.
