They way the thieves worked was always the same: they entered the premises by breaking windows or doors with a heavy object and went directly to the cash registers, which they ripped away and removed.

The cameras in some stores managed to record them while committing the crimes. Thanks to theses recordings, the Civil Guard has managed to identify them. After being arrested, and brought to justice, they have been now released on charges.
