A failed crypto heist in Barcelona, Spain

All Cryptocurrencies

The article is in Spanish but I used Google translate to bring you the highlights:

  • Heist occurred on January 14th 2023 in the Eixample district of Barcelona

  • One man posed as a client while his 4 accomplices gagged and attempted to ziptie the receptionist. The men were armed with tasers.

  • The receptionist resisted and alerted other workers. The owner of the crypto business called the police

  • 4 of the thieves managed to flee down the service stairs

  • The man posing as a customer was caught. Police thought he was an innocent bystander at first, but they found latex gloves in his pockets

  • Car keys and a parking ticket found in his possession led the police to arrest the other 4 men after they attempted to pick up the car.

  • All 5 men have been arrested and charged with robbery using violence and intimidation, illegal detention, criminal damage, injury and threats.


Thought this was quite interesting. We often read about cyber theft of cryptocurrencies, but less so about physical attempts.

If any native Spanish speakers see a mistake please let me know and I'll update the post.
