Guardia Civil officer arrested with armed gang

A guardia civil officer is among the nine people arrested today for their alleged involvement in a number of violent armed robberies in the Alicante and Murcia areas.

Sources within the Guardia Civil said that the gang's preferred targets were high-flying businessmen, who were usually kept hostage overnight to provoke fear, but avoid police involvement.

The gang members threatened violence and used firearms to intimidate their victims, stealing large sums of money from them by forcing them to hand over credit cards and pin numbers or by stealing their luxury cars and returning them the next day "at a price".

In one case, in Murcia, a businessman was kept tied to a chair until his wife brought 3,000€ in cash and promised to pay a further 20,000€ the following day.

The gang members, eight men and a woman are of Spanish and Romanian nationality and aged between 21 and 50.

Six have been charged with aggravated burglary, kidnap, actual bodily harm and holding someone against their will.

The seventh member of the gang has also been charged with revealing secrets, given that he is a member of the country's law enforcement agencies - a Guardia Civil officer based in Murcia.

The remaining two members of the gang have been charged with receiving stolen goods, having been found in possession of a mobile 'phone stolen from one of their victims.

Police have also recovered luxury vehicles, with their number plates changed, mobile 'phones, electronic devices, guns, jewellery and cash.

I'm surprised the McCanns super dicks haven't demanded the right to interview the gang just in case they might have information as to where Madeleine is being held.
