Britons held in burglary enquiry

Break-ins: Stolen items recovered by the Guardia Civil

A GANG of seven housebreakers was arrested following a three-month operation.

The investigation was triggered by a wave of robberies in La Marina Alta last September when more than 100 homes broken into.

Five males – two Spaniards, two Moroccans and a Briton – aged between 19 and 31 were the first to be detained.  All were based in Gata.

Two more arrests followed.  Both detainees were British and both were aged 19.  One was charged with involvement in the robberies and the other with receiving the stolen goods.

These arrests have now enabled the Guardia Civil to solve 63 burglaries in towns all over the Marina Alta, including Benitachell, Denia, Gata, Pedreguer, Javea and Jesus Pobre.
