Car thieves caught red-handed 

A quick call from an eagle-eyed resident allowed police to catch a couple of car thieves red-handed.

Officers from Granadilla were quickly on the scene and managed to arrest two people who were in the process of breaking into one of the vehicles.

The couple, both aged 28 and of Spanish nationality, are believed to have been responsible for a number of break-ins in the Los Llanos area of Granadilla, as well as the town centre itself.

A description of the suspects was given to the police after they were spotted acting suspiciously around cars parked near the municipal cemetery.

Both were arrested and will face prosecution for burglary.
