  • The thief is said to have taken cash and organic beer from the cafe

A man has been arrested over at least four late-night attempted robberies in central Nerja within a few minutes of each other.

The 30-year-old was let out of prison just six months ago and was found in a town square in a drunken state.

Officers were able to identify him as he was wearing a shop apron from a cafe, where he is alleged to have helped himself to organic beer and cash.
