Police in Barcelona, Spain, have arrested five men after a gang tried to storm a crypto company “armed with taser guns and zip ties.”Per El Caso, officers belonging to the Mossos d’Esquadra – the Catalonian police force – swooped after the alleged would-be thieves were intercepted by the company’s owner.
The owner stepped in as the gang was attempting to bind and gag the concierge of the building where the company’s offices are located.Police said the incident took place in the afternoon of January 14.
They explained that one of the gang had posed as a client with an appointment at the company to “gain access to the offices.”But when they were met with resistance, a struggle broke out as they tried to gain entry.
Company workers then notified the company’s owner. The owner then called the police and attempted to apprehend the gang. The thieves then, the police continued, “fled down the service stairs that led to the roof, from where they could jump onto the roof of a neighboring apartment block.”Four escaped in this manner, but the fifth member – who had posed as a client – “got trapped inside the [crypto firm’s] offices.” When he tried to leave via the front door, he was met by police officers.Read more on cryptonews.com
