MADRID - The Guardia Civil called on Tuesday for the public's help in tracking down the killer of two of its agents who were gunned down on 9 June near Castejón in Navarra.
Anybody who has any information that may prove useful in finding the culprit has been asked to phone 900 101 212.
Investigations so far have shown that the two agents, who were on traffic patrol, were shot at from a Suzuki 4X4 vehicle by a man who is believed to have carried out a series of mainly solo raids on isolated rural banks.
The man the Guardia is looking for is said to be a Spanish-speaker — in a region where many people speak Basque — and uses various disguises, including false wig and beard.
Security cameras at the banks he has robbed also show him to be well built, although this could be due to padding in his clothes to further disguise himself.
Film footage shows the suspected killer to be an apparently calm person, and the Guardia believe he could be responsible for assaulting banks right across Spain.
Described as armed and dangerous, he apparently shot the two Civil Guards when they stopped him for questioning. The 4X4 vehicle he was using is believed to be either green or blue in colour.
He is also thought to be the same man who killed a local policeman in a bank raid at Vall D'Uxó in Castellón province in May 2000.
