Beach thief caught out by a hawk-eyed tourist

They were caught using intimidation and violence to rob tourists at Arona’s El Camisón beach, but

the man was taken by surprise when a tourist on the beach saw him stealing the belongings of a

sun-bather, who was swimming at the time.

The thief took flight, but the witness trailed him, catching up with him at the avenue Rafael Puig Lluvina, where an older woman was waiting for him.

The victim had accompanied the witness, and they followed the thief, approaching him and the woman

in an attempt to recover the owner’s belongings. Suddenly, a struggle broke out between all four people.

Fortunately, the National Police arrived rapidly and separated all four, speaking to each one in an attempt to piece together what had happened.

After questioning all four, the police arrested the male thief, along with the woman, who were taken to the station for further questioning.
