A 47-year-old Roman was arrested by the police because he was held responsible for a robbery against a tobacconist, carried out on 30 June in Torresina district. The man, together with an accomplice, had posed as a law enforcement operator and had threatened with a gun the owner of the tobacco shop, who, having left the shop, was taking the day's takings to the bank. The two robbers had stolen 30 thousand euros from the woman by hitting her on the head with the butt of the gun.

Three days after the events, the officers' suspicions had already focused on the 47-year-old and, in fact, during a search, 50 euros had been seized in his home, all in 50 euro notes and divided into 5 vacuum-packed bundles. During the inspection, the police had also found a Carabinieri card which was clearly fake but inserted in a card holder, one of those commonly used by the police and carabinieri.

Thanks to meticulous observation of surveillance cameras and telephone records, the agents of the Flying Squad and the Primavalle District, coordinated by the Rome prosecutor's office, have now found the elements that frame the 47-year-old. Also relevant was the recognition by the victim who reported that the 47-year-old, during the robbery, was wearing a jet helmet which, in fact, left his face completely uncovered.

Having observed the evidence produced, the judge for preliminary investigations therefore issued a precautionary measure against the man. The charges are robbery, aggravated assault and illegal possession of identification documents. The 47-year-old, after the formal acts, was accompanied to prison and is available to the judiciary.
