THREE YOUNG MEN were caught red-handed robbing a bar in Ondara last week.
Police arrived at the scene after a neighbour called 112, reporting to have heard a break-in.
Sure enough, officers caught two Spaniards and one Ecuadorian busting open the slot-machine.
They had already filled their pockets with money from the till and lottery tickets –returned to the bar owner.
The thieves, from Alicante, all have criminal records and remain in custody awaiting trial.
