  • CCTV footage showed the man in the bar in Alhaurín de la Torre, using his hoodie not only to cover his face but to take the items too, pulling the sleeves down over his hands to not leave any trace

The search is on for a man described as an "amateur" thief who stole 1,000 euros and two mobile phones from the popular Poppins Coffee & Restaurant in Alhaurín de la Torre last week.

CCTV footage showed the man in the bar, using his hoodie not only to cover his face but to take the items too, pulling the sleeves down over his hands to not leave any trace.

Having first failed to gain access, the man took the whole safe, as well as two low-value mobile phones, leading the Guardia Civil to believe that it was the first time he had carried out such a crime.
