Teenage thieves caught in the act

Toy Thieves
Children discover one of the Lego figures created by Dutch gorilla artist Ego Leonard

LOCAL POLICE in Murcia have arrested two young children for stealing toys and other items from the FICA exhibition centre based on Avenida Primero de Mayo de Murcia.

Two boys, aged 17 and 13 were surprised by police carrying out a regular patrol after breaking into a parked car at 3am and were seen running away with their arms laden with boxes that contained toys and a selection of sweets.

The younger of the two boys detained was taken back home to face the wrath of his mother; the 17-year-old was taken to the local police station in Carmen where he was charged with stealing with force.  The stolen items were later returned to their rightful owner.
