The eight Britons detained in Mijas for their alleged link to 14 robberies from cash machines, where they opened the machines using an explosive gas were considered as very dangerous, and they think in the U.K. that they burnt out a police helicopter so they could observe their robberies.

Sources close to the case say the individuals detained by the Judicial Police of the Guardia Civil and the National Police Unit against Organised Crime, were being searched for in the U.K. for forty robberies from which they made more than six million pounds.

All from Liverpool these delinquents also burnt out a camouflaged National Police car, when they felt their movements were being watched.

Police attention then turned to the second group, formed completely by British criminals, who were caught on February 28 when trying to rid themselves of any implicating evidence. This second group has a complex structure made up of vehicles and property located in several urbanisations on the western Costa del Sol in an attempt to hide their location.

One was arrested in Marbella when trying to flee in a vehicle known to have been used in one of the robberies, and after this arrest the police established an enclosure around the rest of the group who were based in the Oasis urbanisation in La Cala de Mijas, where the rest of the criminal group were hiding.

On seeing the police arrive several of the men tried to escape along the roofs of the urbanisation where finally four of the most active members of the group, and another two, were detained in a house they had hidden in.
