Such was the coincidence that last weekend saw another hold-up related in a pharmacy in Almuñécar, but this time they caught him in the act.
A young girl phoned the police in Motril to say that her father was beating up her mother at home. Four municipal policemen rushed to the address in the Los Álamos district of the town.
Three armed men decided that they needed a car, and the best choice was a nearby car with two occupants. Trouble was, it was an unmarked police car… trouble that is, for the policemen.
Anybody that’s been to this village the other side of Motril would not expect its only bar to have been the scene of a kidnapping at gunpoint.
