THREE men in their early twenties are under arrest for breaking into a rural holiday home in the Sangonera la Seca area of Murcia at the end of last year.
Investigators detained the trio after identifying the vehicle used in the robbery, leading to the identification of one of the thieves and the subsequent naming of the other two.
Police believe the three, all from Murcia city, got into the property by scaling the fence and breaking through an iron security grill and a window.
Once inside they grabbed electronic goods and tools, bunged them in their car and made off at high speed. Police reported that as well as stealing items the robbers also caused considerable damage to the property.
Most of the items the thieves took have now been recovered, among them a TV, video console, a drill and a microphone.
According to police more than one of the detainees has a criminal record.
