This is the moment a gang of thugs break into a shopping centre in Spain with a 4WD before robbing a jewellery shop and escaping in the vehicle.
The robbery took place in the municipality of Abrera in the comarca of Baix Llobregat in the eastern Spanish autonomous community of Catalonia and was recorded by CCTV cameras.
In the video, a white 4WD can be seen driving through the front door of the shopping centre and three thugs run in after it.
The gang start trying to smash the front window of a jewellery shop with what appears to be a sledgehammer but then resort to breaking the glass with the car.
After the glass smashes some of the gang run into the shop before they can be seen driving out of the shopping centre with one of them carrying a bag of loot.
According to local media, the robbery was reported to the local authorities by a phone call at four in the morning and the gang was formed of six men who robbed several shops in around 15 minutes.
Reports said no people were injured during the robbery but important material damage was done to the establishment and the gang stole jewellery along with several mobile phones.
The Catalonian local police Mossos D’Esquadra have launched an investigation to find the gang. No arrests have been reported. It is currently unclear how much the loot was worth.
