This time in Braga, escaping with €5,000 in cash
The new phenomenon of hooded burglars, breaking into homes while occupants lie in their beds, has made the headlines once again – this time Braga.
A spate of similar raids has gone ahead in the Cascais/ Sintra area. There has been talk of one in the Algarve – and now another case in Avenida Senhor dos Passos, in the parish of Cabreiras, Braga.
This latest incident took place on Monday, and involved a young couple aged 30 and 33.
The bare details given are that four hooded men ‘entered the house’, this time armed with shotguns (the incidents in Cascais/ Sintra referred to handguns).
The raiders ‘threatened the couple’ (no details beyond this) and “managed to steal €5,000 in cash’.
GNR police were called to the scene, but due to firearms being involved, the case is now with the PJ.
