Brutal robbery solved
As part of Operation HAMALA, the Guardia Civil recently arrested a 31-year-old man from San Miguel de Abona. He is suspected of having been involved in a brutal robbery at a shopping centre in Costa del Silencio on August 29 last year. Four masked perpetrators invaded the centre in the borough of Arona at night. They overwhelmed the security guard, beat him all over his body, tied him up and gagged him, so they could calmly carry out their robbery.
