Marbella, Costa del Sol

A BAND of alleged robbers who carried out more than 20 burglaries in Marbella has been dismantled.

Three individuals have been identified by Benalmadena police, two of whom (both Algerian) were arrested, for the alleged burglary of several Marbella houses.

It’s alleged that one would stand guard in a vehicle while the others entered the properties at dawn illegally by climbing or breaking fences or doors to gain entry.

The men, 22 and 41, were transferred from Benalmadena to Marbella after their arrest, and numerous items have been recovered including jewels, money, handbags and a vehicle they had used to commit the assaults.
The trio also allegedly attempted to run over an officer during the pursuit with the stolen vehicle.

The case remains open in light of the police’s failure to arrest the third individual.
