Weapons And Uniforms Stolen From Guardia Civil In Spain’s Toledo
TWO teenagers are under arrested for holding up a man in his own home in Gata de Gorgos with a fake gun.
The victim told Guardia Civil the two adolescents tied him up after a struggle and pointed the false pistol at him.
They snatched €200 and fled via the terrace, nimbly making their way over the roofs of adjoining properties and jumping down on top of a car to get to the ground.
Guardia investigations resulted in the identification of the suspects and thorough searches of the zone led to the discovery of the replica Colt 25 pistol.
The two 17-year olds face charges of violence and intimidation and also for damaging the car roof.
The authorities have placed the pair in reeducation centres.
