Their offences were committed partly in Catalonia and also in Valencia, Vitoria and Pamplona. Later it was found they had started operating in Madrid.

In one robbery at a cash machine nails were thrown across roads in the area to hinder the chances of police following them.

Several private vehicles were damaged and a postman was injured when a nail went into his foot.

Police have also been able to track down several people who were handling the stolen property.

Checks on the men showed a number had committed crimes in other European countries including Germany, Switzerland and Sweden.
