Three years for father and son who held up Malaga supermarket

  • The pair made off with over one thousand euros but were later tracked down by the police

A father and son, 43 and 21, respectively, have been sentenced to three and a half years behind bars for holding up a supermarket in Malaga at gunpoint.

The event took place in mid-April in the Miraflores de los Ángeles area of the city. The pair entered the supermarket, the father with his face covered by a hood and the son wearing a motorcycle helmet, and, displaying their pistols, demanded all of the cash in the tills. According to the sentence, the son fired a single shot.

They made off with 1,189.32 euros but the vehicle they were travelling in was tracked down by police within three hours. The son fled the scene on foot but was captured a couple of kilometres away.
