The officers found a suspect with two women's bags in a nearby garden. The suspect could not prove that these bags belonged to him, instead they were recognised by the victims as their property. more...

The two 41- and 53-year-olds, one from El Hierro and the other from Arona, were noticed by the police during their routine inspection, because one of the men was remarkably nervous while waiting for the other to drive the car out of the ferry's hold. more...
