THREE Cuevas de Almanzora residents were arrested after trying to cash a stolen €1,500 cheque at an Albox bank. The three Spaniards, in their 20s, are accused of stealing the cheque from a car in Cuevas de Almanzora in early June, along with other personal effects.
Guardia Civil were alerted after bank staff reported the cheque listed as stolen had been presented. This led to the arrest of the three men. All three men have a record of prior arrests for similar crimes, Guardia Civil said.
