Arrested is a killer double revelation that your audience never sees coming. Created by one of the new generation of Spanish School Magicians, this trick is not only powerful and creative, it gets wild reactions. This is Arrested by Adrian Vega.

Here’s what happens:

Two spectators choose cards from the deck, which are then lost back into the pack. The magician removes a joker from the deck. The joker is folded in half and two circles are torn out so that it can be worn like a pair of thumb cuffs. After some comedic byplay trying to find the cards with no success the real magic begins. The magician attempts to escape from the thumb cuffs by tearing them in half. Then, in a moment that gets gasps and huge reactions, the joker that was the thumb cuffs is revealed to have transformed into the two halves of the selected cards.

Arrested includes 26 gimmicks in rider back stock with custom jokers that make this trick incredibly easy to do. This effect has built-in misdirection and humor that your audiences will love. When the finale happens it catches them totally off guard resulting in waves of delight and astonishment. In addition to the basic handling, you’ll also learn detailed instructions from Nick Locapo with his handling in which everything ends completely examinable. This trick is so good it’s practically criminal. Get Arrested by Adrian Vega.

Nick Locapo Further Elevates Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on November 28th, 2021
Got this as part of a Black Friday Sale and thought it deserves a review.

I really like this trick. Super easy to do and hit hard with my fam (my toughest audience, as I'm sure many can relate to). As I watched Adrian's cheerful and clever presentation, I thought "I'd do X to elevate this further." Then, Nick Locapo offered an alternative handling that included X. Nick didn't stop there though as he added Y, with Y being an even better idea! Kudos to both Adrian and Nick.

I received this a part of the Black Friday special, and WOW, what an amazing trick to get for free! I would not have been disappointed had I actually purchased this.

The added handling that Nick Locapo provides really adds an extra punch to an already amazing reveal!

It's fun to perform as well!

The magic of Adrian Vega is very creative, making easy apparently impossible solutions.
Both performances/versions, Adrian's and Nick's are superb.
Original plot, easy execution, impossible to reconstruct, and great nuance by both artists.

Really good trick Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on August 17th, 2022
I like it alot, but i think it would have been better if only 1 card was selected.

Hopefully, they can make the gimmick be one card in the future if they have updates.

Other than that, it gets great reactions.
I would still recommend.

Best,
TMC

This is a wonderful effect - so glad that I bought it. I actually disagree that there is no sleight required, because there are a couple of card moves that you probably already know that you'll have to employ. Once you get into the meat of the trick, however, all that is already done, and with the enhanced presentation of Arrested, you finish clean (always important to me). I love tricks that aren't necessarily straightforward, ones that make people think, "What the *&#$*" just happened, and this is one of those. I simply love it, and so does everyone that I've performed it for. It gives your audience a real "What the &#$*" moment. It's time for me to order more of the gimmick, because I'll be doing this one for a long, long time.

This is in fact a hidden gem Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 11th, 2021
This was a very random and very welcome gift I got from Black Friday. To be honest I never expect anything out of gifts, boy was I wrong! This is a very good effect, it's worth buying refills. The idea was awesome, but then Nick Locapo elevated the effect with awesome new ideas. If you're thinking about it, stop... just buy it.
