Thief arrested within the hour after losing book with his name

LOCAL POLICE in Ferrol arrested a man, 40, who robbed a house and lost a book with his name.

The homeowner called the police at around 9.20am to report that his house was being robbed at that moment. Two police cars with four officers rushed to the house and spoke to the owner, who said that she had heard “strange noises” while she was making the bed. She went to the living room, where she saw a man running away.

While he was fleeing, according to a statement from Ferrol Town Hall, he lost the bag that he was carrying. Inside it, police found a small notebook with the words “this notebook belongs to” followed by his name.

The police then searched the area and found the suspect in the Caminho da Valenta area. They searched him and found a penknife on his person, but not the items stolen from the woman’s home.

After questioning him, he admitted that he had hidden the items and when the police went to the spot, they found a metal box with bank books and credit cards in the victim’s name, as well as €250 in cash.

The officers took the man, a resident of Viveiro in Lugo, to the National Police station before 10am.
