A thief arrested in Costa Calma

A thief arrested in Costa Calma with numerous Police records.

At the time of his arrest, the 51-year-old man was carrying a large knife

The Civil Guard arrested on December 18 a man who was caught red-handed while trying to commit a robbery in a tourist resort in Fuerteventura that had experienced up to nine robberies and thefts between October and December of this year.

As detailed by the Las Palmas Command this Thursday in a statement, the detainee, 51 years old and with a Police record, was placed at the disposal of the judicial authority as the alleged perpetrator of 9 crimes against property, since the agents consider that he participated in the theft of Money, electronic devices, jewelry and various belongings from inside the tourist complex, in the Majorera town of Costa Calma.

Police Investigation

The Civil Guard initiated this investigation as a result of several complaints filed in October by the injured people, most of whom were tourists, who reported that while they were sleeping, the alleged perpetrator entered their apartments by forcing the doors or accessing through the open windows.

Based on the complaints, up to nine criminal acts carried out by this procedure were accounted for, amounting to the total amount of cash stolen to 3,632 euros, in addition to electronic devices worth 1,235 euros and jewelry worth approximately 2,300 euros.

In the investigation, the agents detected that the nine criminal acts were carried out in the same area and with the same modus operandi, so they established a surveillance device in the area that managed to catch the arrested person red-handed while trying to commit a robbery.

At the time he was arrested by the officers, this person was carrying a large knife, although he gave up his attitude when he was surprised by the Police.

The investigation is still open, as the Civil Guard is trying to locate the stolen belongings, so it does not rule out that there will be new arrests for these Events.
