and Nicola Palma

Theft of a purse and the usual method of the coat. Forced checkpoint and escape at full speed. Chase and handcuffs. Then the discovery: the driver of a group of thieves, reported in Spain by his ex-wife for torture, walked around with an electronic anklet complete with GPS; a preventive measure that did not prevent him from moving and committing crimes abroad.

9.50 am on Wednesday, we are via Alberto da Giussano, in the area of ​​Conciliazione. The agents of the mobile civil clothing, engaged in one of the most common anti-theft services in the central areas of the city, see an Opel Corsa with three people on board and decide to check its license plate: the database shows that the alphanumeric sequence corresponds to car. usually used by criminals. At that moment, the police, coordinated by manager Marco Calì and officer Michele Scarola, begin to follow him from a distance. The Corsa stops by Rufus’ bar: at one of the tables outside are two women having breakfast. Two Opel passengers get out, the driver sits behind the wheel: they communicate using earphones. In a few seconds, the actors enter the action: one acts as a “guard”, the other puts his coat on the chair next to what one of the women (a fifty-seven-year-old Italian resident in those parts. ) has put her purse and get lost in amen. Suddenly, the two return to the Corsa and return to the car at the corner through Ariosto, but immediately the police cars are there: one in front and one in the back, eliminating any chance of maneuver. Suddenly, the driver, who was later identified as twenty-five-year-old Spaniard Borja Garcie D., gets into one of the mobile cars, creating an opening to escape; during the maneuver, the tire of the Opel Corsa crushed the left leg of the deputy manager, causing him to suffer a broken bone after 15 days. The race begins at full speed, even against traffic: Largo Quinto Alpini, through Monti and through Abbondio Sangiorgio. There the car is stopped: the Spaniard and his assistant Manuel Armando D., a twenty-three-year-old Peruvian who was already reported for aggravated robbery on 8 January and 18 October 2022, end up being handcuffed; The third man managed to escape on foot and is still being sought. Inside the car, the police found a Gucci handbag stolen from a 57-year-old man (who had not noticed anything) and a wallet with 85 euros and a Louis Vuitton jewelry bag taken from who knows him.

Borja Garcie D. is wearing an electronic anklet: from the investigation it turns out that the device, similar to the bracelet used in Italy for house arrest, was given to him by the Iberian judicial authorities after the complaint of torture presented by his wife. A measure to prevent stalking which however did not prevent him from going abroad. Now he and Manuel Armando D. are in San Vittore, under the prosecutor Maurizio Ascione.
