RG Police yesterday arrested a Gibraltarian and a Moroccan national who had earlier broken into the Casino Calpe and stolen over £2,600 from various gaming machines. The two men were identified as Aziddin El Habali and Peter Macias.

An RGP spokesman said:

On entering the building two persons were seen exiting the top floor window thus making good their escape.

“A scene of crime examination was duly carried out where it was noticed that damage had been caused to three gaming machines and £2635 in monies had been taken. A search of the defendants was mounted and subsequently they were arrested on suspicion of Burglary. Search warrants were executed at their respective residences. They were later charged with the offence and appeared in court where they were remanded in custody.”

Meanwhile RG Police thwarted an attempted burglary at the Aragon Bar in Bell Lane in the early hours of Tuesday January 4th 2005.
