This is how three thieves robbed padel, tennis and golf clubs in Catalonia

Mossos agents have arrested three people, between 28 and 43 years old and Romanian nationality, for their alleged relationship with nine robberies with force committed in several sports centers dedicated to the practice of paddle tennis, tennis and golf in different regions of Catalonia. They performed in the counties of Baix Llobregat, Maresme, Baix Empordà, Osona and Baix Camp, among others,

The robberies occurred in sports centers located in isolated areas of urban centers. The assailants stole both the money they found in the establishments, as well as the proceeds from the automatic vending machines and the display products, which they sold in the stores: jackets, T-shirts, rackets and other items of recognized brands and high prices, all for the practice of sport.

Hidden in the woods

The researchers established a common pattern of action in which the detainees traveled long distances to wooded and discreet areas close to their objective and, once sheltered in the darkness of the night, approach cross country. After carrying out the robbery, they waited in the forest or in the vehicles, until the start of daily activity and took advantage of the increase in vehicle movements during these hours to go unnoticed and avoid being detained at a police checkpoint.

At dawn on November 4, when sufficient evidence had been gathered to attribute responsibility for nine criminal acts, a police operation was mounted to detect and stop them. During the surveillance phase, the researchers saw how they went to a paddle tennis club in Alella and entered a wooded area, as they had observed on other occasions, and momentarily lost sight of them.

In fraganti

The device continued active until the early hours of the day, at which time those investigated were detected as they got into the vehicles and returned to their home. Once there, they were arrested red-handed, in possession of the loot they had just stolen.

Subsequently, they conducted an entry and search with judicial authorization at the home of the detainees where they found a series of objects and garments valued at 4,000 euros and another 8,000 euros in cash, from the clubs where they had robbed.
