Robbers arrested

Vila Real de Santo António PSP police have arrested four men who stole nine televisions valued at around €10,000 from an electrical appliance store in the city.

The men, who are aged between 22 and 36, fled the scene in a car but were chased by police and police cars blocking the road stopped them from crossing the border into Spain.

Nine LCD televisions, plus a crowbar, a hammer, a knife, gloves and caps, believed to have been used to commit the crime, were confiscated from the car.

Police are now investigating and have made contact with the Spanish authorities as the suspects are believed to have committed similar robberies in that country.
