The thieves went into action on the night between Thursday 7 and Friday 8 March in the Eurospin supermarket in Via Nizzetti, in the Aci San Filippo hamlet. According to what has been reconstructed so far, the gang had probably organized the robbery in the previous days given that the criminals immediately headed towards a nearby construction site where they stole an excavator, taking it to the supermarket.

Unfortunately for them, however, they had not taken into account the silent alarm in the supermarket, which is linked to surveillance, and the speed of intervention of the police who were already searching a nearby area. In fact, when the alarm installed at the business was triggered, the Operations Center of the Acireale Company was also immediately alerted, which set in motion the crews and the various Carabinieri patrols already active in the area.
