Costa cleaner arrested for suspected theft

A CLEANER suspected of stealing €6,500 worth of jewellery and valuables from a Malaga City home has been arrested.
Police investigations began last September when the owner of the home, in the Miraflores del Palo district of the city, reported that the items and €160 in cash had disappeared from his wardrobe.
After discovering no signs of a break-in or incidents registered with the alarm system, investigators concentrated on a cleaner, an electrician and a painter, the only people who had had access to the keys apart from the owner.
The 45-year-old woman who had been employed to clean the property was found to have later sold items matching descriptions of those stolen at a secondhand shop before leaving to work in Scotland.
Now months later the woman has been tracked down after returning to Malaga, and arrested on Avenida Ortega y Gasset by National Police officers.
