GUARDIA CIVIL arrested two people when they were caught red-handed stealing a bag from inside a vehicle in Guardamar del Segura.
The officers were patrolling in and around urbanization Benamor, when they saw a man break the window of a van in a car park near the Moncayo beach.
Next he reached inside the vehicle and took out a bag which he handed over to a second individual who was waiting for him a few metres away inside another vehicle.
After a chase, the Guardia Civil intercepted them and upon searching the vehicle, they recovered the bag containing almost €300 euros.
Two Algerians aged 42 and 45 were arrested for an alleged crime of theft with force from the vehicle. They were later released on bail pending trial.
