Trio arrested after chapel robbery 


Police have arrested three people on suspicion of breaking into a chapel in San Juan de la Rambla and stealing precious jewels.

The 18-year-old woman and two men, aged 19 and 21, all living in the nearby area, are accused of robbery with force at the ermita.

Access was gained to the chapel when a window was smashed and the area searched. The culprits got away with various pieces of jewellery, some of which was adorning a religious image.

As part of their investigations, police visited a gold shop where they found some of the items corresponding to those stolen in the robbery. It is alleged that the owner paid nearly 2,000 euros for the artefacts to people he knew.
