Police say that they have detained four men who held up the Perla Gris Hotel in Callao Salvaje in the early hours of yesterday morning. The hotel called out the police the minute the men had left and after search teams and road blocks had been quickly set up, the four were stopped before leaving the area. Police have confirmed that the gang is wanted for robberies with violence also in Adeje and Guía de Isora. They are now being processed by the judicial authorities.

The hotel itself has downplayed the incident, saying it was one man who caused a disturbance in reception shortly before 6am and who ran out of the hotel when approached by security. He subsequently disappeared into the local streets. At this point, no doubt, he met up with the others who the police then scrambled to apprehend.
