Gibraltar policeA SPANIARD has gone to jail for two years for stealing almost £30,000 from a Gibraltar shop he previously worked in.

In a stunt judges described as ‘audacious and well-planned’, 27-year-old Luis Adrian Garcia Beltran raided the shop’s safe before escaping over the border on a motorcycle.

He used his key fob to disable security at Mozart tobacco shop in the Irish Town and had three look-outs, one of whom was sentenced to 18 months in jail.

The thief had accessibility to the shop because he was covering for his brother who still worked there who discovered £28,643 was gone the following day.
