POLICE arrested a man who robbed a petrol station, a tobacconist and a pharmacy the same day was released from Albolote Prison, in Granada. The 30-year-old had an extensive record for similar crimes.
Just hours after he was released, he held-up a petrol station, threatening the cashier with a gun, and stole €230 from the till.
He then went to a tobacconist nearby where he threatened the female staff with a screwdriver, demanding money which they refused to hand over.
Next, he headed to a pharmacy, screwdriver still in hand, threatening the pharmacist and stealing €400 and a pack of tranquilizers.
