A British resident of Marbella has been arrested by Mijas Local Police and handed to the National Police in connection with a robbery in the early hours of Wednesday from a branch of a supermarket chain in Las Lagunas. It happened at 4.30 am when a patrol car from the National Police observed how security guards were trying to enter the building, when the alarm went off. One of the railings had been broken to gain access, but neither the National Police nor the security guards found anyone inside. However a man was seen running off the in the direction of Avenida de Andalucía. A Local Police patrol, not involved up to now saw the man running suspiciously and so they stopped to question him. The Briton, who is 36 and has the initials C.E.P. was handed over to the National Police.
