A BAND OF THIEVES broke into and robbed three shops in La Cañada shopping mall in Marbella on February 23 after they entered through a hole in the roof.
The shrewd shoplifters opened up a hole in the roof directly above a sports store located on the top floor of La Cañada. Sliding down on ropes they gained entry before the mall opened in the morning. The sports store, a mobile phone shop and a bar all located in the same area were targeted by the thieves.
The National Police has opened an investigation. This is not the first time La Cañada has been broken into in this way. A few years ago, at the same shopping centre, thieves stole from a store by gaining access through a hole in the roof.
