Additional Police on duty, and extra road blocks over the Easter weekend, led to the arrest of a youth who has been wanted in connection with various crimes for some time.

Two youths aged 20yrs, M.A.G.R and 24yrs, J.U.R.B, both from Icod, were stopped in a routine road block in Puerto Santiago on Thurday 20th March. Local police became suspicious when the youths began to show nervous behaviour.

Upon further questioning the youths paniced and tried to drive off. Quick action by the police led to the arrest of both men. A stolen credit card belonging to a Norwegian woman was found during a body search.

Both men were arrested and are waiting charges. The stolen car and credit cards were handed back to the rightful owners.
