Organised gang busted after a jewellery store robbery
A perfectly organised Romanian gang specialising in robberies at jewellery stores was recently busted in Lanzarote. Five people have been arrested, and one suspect is still at large. The gang, which is held responsible for several robberies across Europe, has also carried out three robberies in Lanzarote, pocketing more than five million euros in proceeds. The alleged head of the gang, O.H., has been convicted several times in Spain and Italy. The procedure was always the same: three people perpetrated the robbery, the other three disappeared with the booty in order to sell it elsewhere and turn it into cash. In this case, only about 20 per cent of the stolen goods could be recovered.
