NEWS GANG BUSTED

Investigations started back in February, with the Guardia having identified at least 14 crimes that the vicious gang were involved in, describing them as a dangerous group that would not hesitate to threaten victims with violence. The men, in their twenties, have been charged with a variety of offences including robbery, car theft, forgery, as well as assaulting two police officers during one of the arrests. Two luxury cars, jewellery, and televisions were amongst the items recovered by the Guardia in what was codenamed Operation Rocalmo.
