Spanish Authorities Finally Apprehend Gastroburglars

Reports have been flowing in that authorities have finally arrested the seven robbers that have been breaking into and stealing from restaurants throughout Spain. These, as some may recall, are the folks that have hit Arzak, Akelarre, and Martín Berasategui in the last couple of months.

In addition to the Basque three-stars, as ABC reports, the suspects are accused of stealing from over fifty bars, restaurants, and businesses throughout Spain. Among the details made public are that the suspects are of eastern European descent and followed the same M.O. throughout their spree, and that the authorities have been after them since March.
