A 43-YEAR-OLD man was arrested in Motril after he was caught red-handed trying to break into a vehicle inside a community garage.
A neighbour alerted the 091 service as he had heard loud noises inside the garage where his car was also parked and he reported seeing a man breaking a vehicle’s windscreen.
The man tried to escape when the officers arrived but was intercepted by them.
Authorities confiscated several objects found in his coat pockets, including a remote control unit for the garage doors and several keys.
Residents of the building who were waiting at the garage’s entrance recognised some of the objects the suspect was carrying as theirs, and found that four other cars had suffered damage.
