Bank robber found hiding under table in Almeria


AN 18-year-old who allegedly robbed a bank in Nijar has been arrested by Guardia Civil officers after reportedly finding him hiding under a table.

Police made their way to the branch after receiving notification from its alarm system, triggered during robberies.

Officers went inside the bank and found the alleged robber hiding under a table.

The suspect reportedly attempted to flee before police tried to stop him, resulting in a scuffle between him and an officer.

Police claimed the suspect was found carrying merchandising material from the bank, as well as two watches, keys, a memory stick and a €10 note. Proceedings have been sent to a court in Almeria.
