If At First You Don’t Succeed…

Well, that's what they say, but after two failed attempts at hold ups and a bag-snatching failure, you might well want to consider a career change, no?

GRA Failed Hold Up NV21This is the case of one optimistic, but abysmally useless, robber who has just been arrested for the third time after being thrown out of his targeted premises on two previous occasions.

Our 38-year-old hero goes by the nickname, Roro. He was arrested for bag-snatching as he rode by on the back of a moped the Friday before last.

The tormented moped crew hadn’t gone far when they were nabbed by the Policía Nacional before they could make good their get away.

Two of his hold ups had been recorded by CCTV; one in a pharmacy and the other in a supermarket, on both occasions armed with a pistol (fake or real).

In the case of the pharmacy, situated on Camino de Ronda, the chemist at first offered no resistance but then changed his mind and wrestled with him until he had thrown him out the door. The thief did manage to grab a few bank notes before he was ejected, though.

In the supermarket on the Camino Bajo in Huétor the staff set upon him and gave him a good hiding before he managed to escape.
