Two Britons arrested for armed hold-up

TWO Britons who allegedly held staff at gunpoint in a Puerto Banus supermarket robbery, returned two days later as customers.

Daniel Rushton and Matthew Daly, both 25, were queuing for credit on their mobile phones when armed police swooped on February 2.

A stunned staff member at OpenCor supermarket recognised the men, who had been masked and wielding a metal bar, and called the police.

Detectives found balaclavas at the pair’s home but neither has been charged.

They appeared in court in Marbella and are being investigated on suspicion of involvement in several other armed robberies on the Costa del Sol.
