A BURGLAR made a mockery of the Mojacar justice system this week by escaping from a jail cell after being arrested for burglary and theft of a vehicle and then proceeding to burgle another property in the same area a few days later.

The young man identified as 21-year-old Álvaro R.C. was caught red handed with his accomplice by police in Mojacar, having stolen from an apartment in the area. The two offenders, from Jaen, were arrested and charged with the offence and put into custody by police. Unfortunately they managed to escape by squeezing through the jail door’s communication window, which is said to be about the size of an A4 sheet of paper.

The man, who has 12 previous convictions for robbery and theft and his accomplice are still on the run.
