Thief targets San Fulgencio holidaymakers

HOLIDAY makers Mia Towndrow and her family were burgled in La Marina, San Fulgencio while they were out of the house.

She was staying with her mother, sister and cousin at a property located at Calle Parque del Sena when a man entered the house via a balcony stealing electronic equipment and several other items.

They suspect the man used a screwdriver to force the balcony door open which he accessed via a stairwell of a neighbour’s house which was empty at the time.

Just a few days earlier her cousin Joanna was lying on the balcony when she heard a man jump over to the next doors patio where they have a stairway to the solarium and literally easily “would be able to walk over to our balcony and jump over,” she said. Could this be the thief which would later return to steal their property?

“This man must have seen our balcony doors open, and not seeing my cousin until she got up. My cousin got up to see who was there and the man said ‘hola’, in broken English” claiming to be looking for a dark cat.

“We know there is an old black cat living in the area and a white one, though they appear to be old and roam around all the time, this is why it is strange. Who would be looking for their cat in the middle of the day?” she said.

According to Joanna the man appeared to be tanned, had brown hair and was in his mid-30s, appearing to be Spanish. “Although at the time it didn’t seem strange, since we were burgled a few days later it dawned on us,” she said. If readers spot this man they are asked to inform Local Police in San Fulgencio or Guardamar del Segura.

Luckily the thief did not steal passports or credit cards as they were leaving the next day.

“We always stay in La Marina and have enjoyed many hoildays. It is like a home from home. It’s just a shame this happened. I am writing this to warn people about this strange guy if they are approached and they should inform the police. He didn’t take any thing that belonged to the property which is strange. Just our valuables,” she said.
