A restaurant and a bar in Los Menores were broken into on the same night last week. One of the establishments was the well-known pink Dama Rosa restaurant, whose owner says that this is the third burglary the premises has suffered in the last month. Once again the thieves broke in by breaking the padlock in the external metal door. On the two previous occasions, the slot machines had been broken to release the money inside, but this time the machines themselves were taken with around €1,000 inside. A television was also stolen.
Within a few hundred metres of the Dama Rosa, the second burglary took place in the Cochabamba bar, where the thieves again made off with slot machines and the till. The vehicle used for the robberies, a blue Toyota Hi-Ace, was itself stolen. It was later found abandoned, along with the slot machines, on a piece of land between the El Puertito road and Golf Costa Adeje. Adeje Guardia Civil is investigating. El Dia
