A 48-year-old man has been arrested in Alicante Province for being part of a four-strong gang which stole valuable church artefacts. The other arrests by the Guardia Civil came in Zaragoza. 200 pieces, including an 18th century statue which had been taken from a church in the Monte Rioja area last year, were recovered in two house searches. A number of the artefacts had been altered by the gang in order to disguise where they had been stolen from.
