The National Police and Civil Guard in Malaga have apprehended the alleged perpetrator of several robberies that have taken place since January 20th.

The suspect had attempted to rob a bank in Marbella shortly before his arrest.

Details of the Crimes

In all instances, the crimes took place in establishments open to the public and were committed by the same individual. The suspect used various disguises to avoid identification. During his criminal activities, he brandished a firearm in a threatening manner. It was discovered that the suspect used a stolen van from Algeciras for some of his robberies.
