The manager of most banks, if not all, has the power to decide what they will charge for various services. So I suggest you ask the manager as any posts here will only be best guesses.

1 Ads. How do the local Police react to instances of theft......

The Policía Local do not deal with crimes, albeit that they have the power to arrest.  It is either the Guardia Civil or Policía Nacional (or I believe in the Basque Country and Cataluña the equivalent)

If one is the victim of a crime they should try to report it to police who have jurisdiction for the place where the crime was committed.  However, both the Guardia and Policía Nacional are required to take a crime report (denuncia) if one goes to their office.  Information about some crimes can be given in Engish and other languages on 902 101 112  but the actual crime report is not made until one attends the National police station they have nominated, not at a Guardia Barracks.   If one does not attend and sign then no report exists.

Care should be taken when signing a crime report, which of course will be in Spanish, where the info was given on the telephone, as the translations can be quite poor.

NB   Very few  Spanish police stations have a translator service and few officers speak English,  so one may need to take a translator . 

Ads,  There are very more police officers at police stations in Spain than at an equivalent police station in UK.  They can often appear unsympathic to victims
