The Civil Guard of Las Rozas has arrested two people who were stealing from commercial establishments in broad daylight and taking advantage of the workers' absences. In this way, and for months, their pockets were filled with cash, computers and electronic devices that they later sold. Both are attributed at least six hits in different areas of the Community of Madrid and are charged with robbery with force. In addition, a third person is being investigated for a crime of reception, for allegedly having helped the detainees to hide the loot.
According to investigative sources consulted by ABC, the two detainees, of Moroccan origin, were specialized in stealing from commercial establishments.
The investigations began in the middle of last January after detecting an increase in robberies with force in establishments in the center of Las Rozas, Madrid. The robberies also extended to San Martín de la Vega and other areas of the region. The suspicion that they would act again precipitated the arrest of those under investigation.
The security cameras around the premises were reviewed. Thus, the Civil Guard agents managed to identify the vehicle that the thieves used to travel to the robberies. That track led them to the Cañada Real where the agents located and arrested the alleged perpetrators. From the search of his home, the agents were able to recover some of the stolen objects, computers or electronic devices that those under investigation had prepared to sell to third parties. They have already been returned to their owners. In addition, the Civil Guard requisitioned the vehicle they used to move in their hits.
