National Police agents have arrested three Torrevieja-based French female burglars who tried to rob a flat in Murcia City, but were rumbled as they were breaking in. The three women aged between 28 and 36 tried to force their way into the property on Calle Mar Menor in the San Andres area of the city, but a neighbour was disturbed by the noise across the hallway and watched what was going on through her front-door peep hole.

Police then quickly swooped on the block and caught the burglars trying to escape in the lift and found loads of evidence outside the building including a foreign registered car (pictured being examined) with a rental contract for a Torrevieja apartment inside it. The police said that one of the women had been arrested 39 times for burglary in France, and as a trio, they had allegedly struck on 14 occasions in Spain targeting coastal properties and then moving inland to hit those they thought likely to be empty with owners away on their summer break.
