Two men were caught red handed and arrested yesterday as they tried to burgle a shop near the Barranco del Infierno.

The pair, thought to be brothers who live locally, were detained after a neighbour reported hearing noise in the shop in the early hours of the morning.

The shop had been broken into on several previous occasions. Police are questioning the two men in connection with a number break-ins that have been reported recently in hotels, homes and business premises in the area.
