The Setúbal GNR has received several allegations of theft in vehicles parked in Serra da Arrábida and this Sunday detained a 27-year-old man in flagrante delicto, who broke the window of a vehicle and was preparing to flee with a thousand euros. The suspect, registered, was placed in preventive detention after being presented to court.
The plainclothes military guarded the access area to the beaches of Arrábida, around Azeitão, where this type of crime has been recurrent, and they came across the individual circling some vehicles parked there. The suspect broke the window of a car, removed a thousand euros from the interior and when he came across the military he tried to flee on foot, but without success.
The 27-year-old man was arrested in flagrante delicto for aggravated theft and this Monday he went to court to apply coercive measures. He was placed in preventive detention, the most severe measure applied by the Criminal Investigation Judge. The action counted on the reinforcement of soldiers from the Territorial Post of Palmela.
