SPAIN’S National Police have uncovered €87,000 buried in an orchard in Alhaurin de la Torre.
Police linked the cash to an organized criminal group which specialise in home robberies in Malaga, Benajarafe and Coin.
The gang’s five members have now been arrested in connection to at least 10 burglaries in the province.
The police operation, called Fly, began thanks to the information provided by an anonymous security guard.
As well as stealing cash, the gang primarily sought technical gadgets and jewellery to sell quickly on the black market.
A €150,000 robbery in Coin last month is amongst the criminal groups list of high profile heists.
