SANTA CRUZ DE TENERIFE, 29 Sep. (EUROPA PRESS) –
The National Police has arrested a 23-year-old man after robbing a jewelry store and previously attempting it in a cafeteria in Santa Cruz de La Palma, for which he is accused of two crimes of robbery with force on things, one in degree attempted and another accomplished.
At dawn a call was received to the CIMACC room of 091 in which it was reported that a person was trying to enter a cafeteria in the center of the city, banging hard on the door. Upon the arrival of the agents patrolling the area, they met with the requesting neighbor, who showed them a video of the events and gave them a description of it.
Thus, the agents undertook the search for it and in the meantime another commission was received, reporting that a young man had broken the window of a jewelry store. From the description provided by another citizen who also recorded the events, it was found that it was the same person as in the previous case.
The search for the author continued until he was located in a nearby street, already detained by agents of the Local Police, who had also received information about the events. The author coincided with the descriptions provided, he had bleeding wounds on his hands, the result of the breakage of the glass window and, in addition, numerous jewels and valuables from the jewelery shop were found during the search.
Thus, the detainee, a native of Santa Cruz de La Palma and with a police record for similar events, was reviewed and made available to the competent judicial authority.
