LOCAL POLICE in Motril have dramatically intercepted two men attempting to burgle a house in the town’s centre.
The men, who have now been taken to court, were arrested after officers received a call from a home-owner claiming someone had broken in.
Finding the locks forced and the house turned over, with draws and cabinets emptied of their contents, police heard neighbours shout the suspects had made their way onto the roof.
Pursuing the men, they caught one as he fled, finding the other man hidden amongst the roof tiles shortly after. It is reported the alleged thieves both had previous arrests for similar crimes.
Maria Angeles Escamez, Deputy Mayor for Public Security, commented, “once again, thanks to the speedy and diligent work of our Local Police, we have been able to arrest the alleged perpetrators of a burglary in our city.”
