Police bust airport highway robbers – The National Police has dismantled a gang of thieves who  targeted passengers returning to the country via Las Americas  International Airport.

According to the police report, the gang used hire cars to intercept the passengers on the highway from the airport.

The authorities named the ringleaders as Bruno Nolasco and Kelvin  Sena, who were arrested in a police raid in the Santo Domingo East  neighborhood of El Almirante.

One of the gang’s victims was Mrs. Gladys Espinosa Fresa, 42, who was  robbed of three suitcases containing clothing, gifts and thousands of  dollars. They also stole her hand luggage with her travel documents,  perfume, cell phones and other items.

The police authorities believe the gang was responsible for a series  of similar robberies that targeted returning air passengers traveling on  the Las Americas Highway. They are searching for more gang members in  the neighborhoods of El Almirante, Valiente and La Caleta.

Only a few months ago the police arrested a similar group for attacking and robbing tourists arriving to the Dominican Republic, they were quickly released after a few days in jail so they could continue their profitable business.
