Guardia Civil in Almeria arrest a man on suspicion of two counts of robbery

CAREFUL: Guardia Civil officer inspects hives.

GUARDIA CIVIL officers have arrested a man on suspicion of two counts of robbery and other offenses committed in apiaries throughout Almeria province.

The arrest is the result of the new plan of action instigated by the national police following an outbreak of thefts of agricultural machinery and livestock in rural areas.

Officer’s attention was drawn to the suspect who was farming more than 600 hives in various parts of the region. They found the markings on some of them apparently corresponded to some earlier reported stolen.
