Violent robbers pretended to be Guardia Civil

A GANG which used Guardia Civil uniforms in order to mug lorry drivers has been arrested in Madrid.

The investigation began in October last year when a lorry driver was approached by several people on the A-2 in Guadalajara, central Spain.

They stole all the goods he was carrying and put him in the boot of a car, where he remained for several hours.

In April this year, another lorry driver was intercepted in a similar manner on the M-45 outside Madrid and later released.

The assailants wore Guardia Civil uniforms and even had a luminous sign like those used by the traffic department, requiring the drivers to stop.

Their attacks were violent and they used firearms, as well as frequency inhibitors to avoid being located.

The five detainees, all Spaniards aged between 26 and 35, worked from a warehouse in Madrid, where almost 7,000 mobile phones, worth €450,000, were found.

They all have criminal records and some have done time in prison.
