THEY targeted some of Spain’s top restaurants, leading to them being dubbed the ‘Gastro Gang’.

But now police have finally bagged the group, who broke into a string of Michelin-starred restaurants in northern Spain.

The thieves – of eastern European origin – disabled alarms at eateries including Arzak, Berasategui and Akelarre.

The well-organised gang, who were living in Torrevieja, targeted several other restaurants and are understood to have had safehouses in Madrid.
