Police Catch Ram-Raiders Red Handed

This is the moment Spanish police catch a gang of ram-raiders red-handed outside a mobile phone store.

The four gang members, accused of taking part in 24 ram-raids in 13 different Spanish provinces, were arrested outside a shopping centre in the city of Burgos in the autonomous community of Castile y Leon.

The suspects were reportedly caught stealing 77 high-end products and six tablets from a mobile phone store.

As well as ramming their way into shops with vehicles to steal merchandise, the gang also used mallets and pickaxes to smash their way into premises and steal expensive products, according to local media.

They are accused of carrying out ram-raids in the provinces of Albacete, Almeria, Burgos, Caceres, Ciudad Real, Cordoba, Cuenca, Huesca, La Rioja, Malaga, Murcia, Navarra, and Zaragoza.

The National Police said they carried out a similar robbery in Albacete the night before being caught in Burgos.

The getaway car they used in the Albacete robbery was the same driven in the Burgos theft, according to the police.

Three suspects are currently being held in custody while the other, with no previous criminal record, was released on charges.

The investigation continues.
