AN organised gang which targeted jewellers around the country has been broken up. One arrest was made in Alicante Province as the gang is thought to be responsible for eight thefts in Alicante, Madrid, Guadalajara, Almeria and Cuenca, amounting to about €160,000.

The same modus operandi was used in all the thefts with the gang pretending to be interested in one item of jewellery to study the store’s security measures, before returning to view it again and then fleeing with several items.
