Car chase through capital
Police in Santa Cruz arrested three men after a car chase through the city centre.
The incident started after a patrol car saw a Volkswagen Golf drive through red traffic lights near the Galcerán bridge. With their lights flashing and siren sound-ing, they chased the vehicle through several streets and were joined by other patrols before the car was stopped.
Two men inside were searched and arrested after officers found five top-end mobile phones, 124 euros in cash, computer hardware equipment and 22 plastic wrappers containing what was believed to be heroin with a total weight of 22 grams. The car was also seized.
During the arrest, a third person nearby was gesticu-lating to the other two.
When he was asked to identify himself, he tried to run off but was caught and arrested.
