This is the moment hotel security secretly film a man climbing into hotel rooms and robbing tourists in the British holiday hotspot of Majorca shortly before the cops arrive.
The man and his accomplice, who were not named, were arrested in the beach resort of Playa de Palma on the island of Majorca in the eastern Spanish region of the Balearic Islands.
A 45-year-old man and a 34-year-old accomplice carried out the alleged robberies during the early hours of the morning, usually while the tourists were fast asleep.
According to local media, the suspects, who both have criminal records, were mainly stealing holidaymakers’ wallets and mobile phones.
They were caught when a hotel chain collaborated with security guards who managed to film one of the men scaling several balconies.
Staff then called the cops and the man was found hiding under a bed in one of the rooms, according to local media.
Reports said that the 45-year-old suspect has spent many years behind bars for various offences and is currently accused of 10 hotel robberies.
The 34-year-old suspect is accused of robbing three hotel rooms.
The investigation is ongoing.
Netizen ‘Michel Escolano’ commented: “Too bad he did not fall…”
While ‘Gloria Acosta’ said: “He thinks he is Superman!”
