TWO Italian citizens, crew members of a cruise ship which docked in Palma last Friday (April 10), were arrested after allegedly carrying out thefts around the promenade area.
Local Police were alerted at around 2am to the theft of a purse in a bar at Avenida Gabriel Roca. The staff managed to hold the two suspects, who were a 21-year-old woman and a 19-year-old man.
After watching a surveillance camera tape provided by staff members of the bar, the two suspects decided to collaborate and lead the police to the site where the loot had been hidden.
Both suspects were taken into custody at Palma’s San Fernando jail.
