The Civil Guard began the investigation by analyzing the evidence provided and verified that the alleged perpetrators formed a compact group, with a classic pyramidal structure organization, with all the components responding to a single person.
After the first investigations, the agents confirmed the relationship existing between the intellectual author of the robbery (in charge of obtaining information on the distribution of the home, the victims’ routines and the location of the safe) and the person responsible to select the homes of interest.
The organization had individuals known as “machacas”, trusted personnel of the main members of the organization who were usually entrusted with usual tasks, such as transportation, surveillance or guarding the proceeds of illicit products.
