MAGALLON, Spain, May 20 (UPI) -- Police in Spain said they arrested a man accused of breaking into a fortune teller's home to recover the $212,000 he paid for a love spell that didn't work.

Investigators said Jose Laparra, former manager of the Club Deportivo Castellon soccer team, paid the sum to a Magallon fortune teller in exchange for casting a spell to bring his former lover back to him, thinkSPAIN reported Monday.

However, Laparra allegedly broke into the woman's house when the spell didn't work and demanded his money back.

Police said Laparra suffered a panic attack during his arrest and was taken to Zaragoza's Hospital Clinico.

Laparra and four alleged accomplices are facing charges from the break-in, police said.
