Guardia Civil have arrested a 41  year old British man on suspicion of armed robbery.  Police caught him after a video of the robbery was shown on social media on Thursday 19th October.

The video shows a man enter the Mijas Pueblo Hotel wearing a Star Wars helmet.  He casually approaches the desk where he threatens staff with a shotgun.  After taking €1500 in cash, he begins to leave the building before returning to destroy a phone.

 

Earlier in the day an attempted robbery was reported at a Mijas holiday home, by a suspect also wearing a Storm Trooper helmet.  The unnamed Englishman is now being held without bail before a trial.
