Malaga police catch thief red-handed robbing a beach bar

National Police officers in Malaga caught a thief red-handed as he was in the process of robbing a beach bar in the Huelin district, in the west of the capital city. He had forced the main door to get inside the premises, and caused an estimated €3,000 of damage. The detainee has been charged with the crimes of robbery, and breaking and entering.

This incident occurred at around 2am on Friday, December 17, in a chiringuito on the Antonio Machado seafront. An alarm connected to the police station was triggered as the thief entered, immediately alerting patrols in the area of an intruder in the restaurant.

A National Police patrol was on the scene within minutes, where they surprised the robber in the middle of his crime. Although he tried to escape, the man was apprehended by the officers, and taken into custody at the police station.
