Two arrested for string of robberies
Two people have been arrested for committing half a dozen robberies in La Laguna.
Police say two of the six crimes were committed in the same pharmacy and another was a robbery with violence.
Both men, aged 24 and 30 and with numerous police records, were identified and apprehended late at night in the entertainment area of the town known as El Quadrilateral. Two women had contacted the police to report a robbery with violence.
The “modus operandi” to access the establishments consisted of forcing the doors with a lever or breaking some window glass with a manhole cover.
Police managed to recover two jackets and a mobile phone.
