NATIONAL POLICE based in Alicante have arrested two men for attempting to rob a house in Vistahermosa.
The two arrested suspects – aged 48 and 51 – were caught in the act inside the property having forced the security grills covering a window to gain access to the house. The alarm had been set off in the process and had alerted the emergency police response team who arrived at the house.
When police officers got to the scene, they noticed that there were signs that the suspected robbers could still be inside the property so they gained access, where they discovered two men with partially covered faces and wearing hats and gloves hoping to leave no trace of their crimes. They were caught in the act of placing a number of items into a black plastic sack, as well as placing a television set close to an open window with the aim of removing it just as they were leaving the premises. The rapid intervention of the police put pay to all their plans.
