FOUR men have been arrested in Spain for using explosives to blow open cash machines in Madrid.
Explosive devices, believed to be powerful pyrotechnic firecrackers, were used to burst open cash machines in Spain’s capital city.
The four detained men were captured on video attempting to flee the scene in a stolen red Volkswagen Golf, dropping a large sum of stolen money while entering the getaway vehicle.
Two of the alleged robbers were arrested in the stolen vehicle in which they are spotted speeding away in the National Police footage.
Having previously identified the suspects after a series of similar robberies, police officers awaited the remaining two suspects outside their homes, arresting both.
The arrested quartet are allegedly responsible for nine criminal acts between them, including the cash machine robberies, one thousand false two-euro coins found in their possession, the cultivation of 150 marihuana plants and the possession of illegal pyrotechnics.
