Captured members of the feared gang Los Rolex in Pereira

The authorities in Pereira, Risaralda, confirmed the capture of two foreign citizens belonging to the gang ‘Los Rolex’, which is dedicated to stealing high-end watches. The detainees had shot a man minutes before to steal his watch in the Circunvalar sector.

According to Colonel Javier Raúl Gallego, commander of the Pereira Metropolitan Police, the members of this gang are dedicated to marking their victims in shopping centers, airports or exclusive places to later follow them and steal their watches.

On this occasion, the two captured followed the man who was shot from the Matecaña International Airport to the city’s bus terminal.

“The man arrives at the Transport Terminal, gets out of the taxi and is immediately intimidated by one of these subjects, after following him up and without saying a word in a cold, cruel way. This delinquent impacted the victim on several occasions, after she refused to give him the watch”, assured Colonel Gallego.

The two citizens were captured when they were traveling in a vehicle in which the authorities found a cove with two traumatic weapons inside.
