CARS BURGLED: The windows were broken and the glove box contents stolen.
A CAMPOHERMOSO resident has been detained on suspicion of committing a string of burglaries in Nijar. The accused allegedly broke into five cars in one afternoon, looting the contents of their glove boxes and any other valuables found inside.
A concerned resident alerted the Guardia Civil after spotting the perpetrator ransacking a vehicle on the main Campohermoso-Nijar road, but the raider made his getaway by the time a patrol arrived at the scene.
Just two hours later a second call was received, and this time officers arrived to find a man matching the description given by the first witness standing by a car with a broken left rear window and open door.
A brief search revealed the suspect was clutching a black bag containing €90 in cash and various small valuable items. The sheepish swindler was placed under arrest.
