A gambling hall in Arrecife was ram-raided in the early hours of Monday morning.

The Salón de Juegos on Calle Tenderete in Arrecife was filmed being smashed into by a car as men entered the establishment to steal goods.

According to a report by La Voz, the raid took place at 2:30am this Monday morning. Residents in the area heard a crash as a vehicle reversed into the shop.

Those involved proceeded to put one of the machines in the boot before speeding off.

This isn’t the first ram-raid, in fact a GAME shop in Arrecife was raided last month. Workers said that a number of consoles had been stolen.

More recently, at the end of August, a car had tried ramming a free-standing cash dispenser in the El Pueblo shopping centre in Playa Blanca. The attempted robbery was unsuccessful and the thieves abandoned the car.
