TWO suspected thieves are under arrest for targeting an Alicante airport cafe.
Police said between the two of them the detainees have criminal records for nearly 40 similar offences.

Police investigations led to the identification of the two men.
Within 48 hours of the break-in officers had intercepted the vehicle the robbers used to get away from the airport and arrested two of the three occupants for carrying out the hit on the cafe.
