A couple who are suspected of drugging home owners before ransacking their homes have been arrested by Policia Nacional.
The pair, who would pose as sellers of goods or services on social media, would meet their victims at their homes before drugging them and stealing valuables.
Robberies of this type were reported in Madrid, Bilbao and Barcelona, and are believed to have been inspired by a criminal gang using the same modus operandi.
One person drugged ended up suffering a stroke, whist other victims suffered narcotic poisoning.
The two have been remanded in custody ahead of their trial.
