Six of the evening of last Sunday, November 11, in the small and quiet village of Mollina (Malaga). Brazenly, four men armed with clubs came to stealing in the shop of Francisco Olmedo. Despite the fact that a neighbor tried to prevent it, you are carrying € 7,000 in tools. The criminals still don't know, but that would be one of his last suits. Last November 13, 14 members of the band ended up arrested, accused of stealing, mostly with moon landings, in 60 shops in the whole of Andalusia in just three months.
This Tuesday Olmedo has been able to recover most of its goods in the premises of the Headquarters of the Civil Guard in Cádiz: “What is worse is that the damage that they have done in the shop are worth the same as stolen.” The entrepreneur is one who has attended the presentation of the so-called Operation Bahiroski (an acronym of the two shopping malls in cadiz in which the group stole for the first time, South Bay and Eroski), once the Court of Instruction number 3 of San Fernando (Cádiz) has lifted part of the secret summary.
In just three months, the band showed off a frenetic activity of theft in all the andalusian provinces, except Almeria, and woke up one important “social alarm”, as it has been assured the colonel Alfonso Rodriguez. On the same night, they were able to dock in three provinces: Sevilla (where they have concentrated the majority of the robberies), Cadiz and Granada. In total, 60 strokes in those who have stolen from mobile up to hams, passing through perfumes, or equipment for your motorcycle. The guardia estimated that the value of all appropriate illegally in excess Matadorbet of one million euros.
In the living room of acts of the Commander of Cadiz, the Civil Guard has exhibited the stolen material that was found in the nine records of the addresses of the band members, all performed in Seville, from where they played the detainees. Among the above, there were over 60 t-shirts stolen from the official store of the Real Betis Balompié and was scheduled to travel to the town of Kenitra, in Morocco, where the band sold most of the stolen goods, in collusion with managers of transportation that are still being investigated.
The 14 detainees -in addition to six others that have order-order of detention - came from two groups of aluniceros already made havoc in Andalusia: the band of the Seat and the BMW, known by the marks of the cars which they used for their shots. Investigators believe the suspects met in prison and, once released, they decided to start an intense activity in which he always repeated the same ‘modus operandi’.
The thieves were stealing cars from different parts of the region. Then, they used to steal in shops by means of two techniques: or were launched and exploded the windows, embedding these vehicles in the shop windows or entrances or destroyed both entrances equipped with maces. In a few minutes, left the place of the facts and, on occasions, were on their way to points from the other provinces to continue with their criminal activity on the same night. When finished use the tourism pilfered, burned to clear the tracks.
But as “violent” to proceed, as it has qualified Rodríguez, ended last November 13 with the arrest of the 14 involved. The civil guards considered to be alleged perpetrators of the crime of robbery with force and Violence, theft and use of vehicles, drug trafficking and membership of a criminal organisation. Therefore, the Court of San Fernando had already ordered the immediate income in prison of six of the imprisoned.
Three arrested for 16 burglaries

The investigated gained access to the premises by using the method ‘rififí’, which consists of making a break in the roof of the building. The band has fallen after using this technique to steal in Malaga, Santander, Jaen, Castellon, or Valladolid.
