Police arrest one of three burglary gang fugitives


Greek police arrested on Saturday morning one of the three Albanian nationals who had escaped last Tuesday from a police station where they were being held in Argyroupoli, southern Atherns, by jumping out of a window.

He was found at the house of a friend in Koropi, eastern Attica. The 28-year-old was reportedly hidden in a closet and didn't resist arrest.

The three men are believed to be members of a gang responsible for more than 70 burglaries in the Attica region.

The suspects escaped by cutting the metal window grill in the bathroom and jumping from a height of about 10 meters. They were chased by policemen who saw them but they managed to flee.

Police is searching for the other two escapees in Loutsa and Koropi.
