A light-fingered ex-employee is under arrest after the company boss reported the disappearance of more than €1,700 worth of professional materials from the business’s warehouse to Garrucha Guardia Civil. 

Missing items included company clothing and communication and security technology. 

A Guardia investigation into possible suspects who would have had access to the materials led to the detention of M.A.L.F. from Huercal-Overa. 

When officers interviewed the 35-year old he was working for another company. The Guardia said in the face of the contradictions in his statements and the evidence they had against him, he voluntarily handed over the items he had stashed in a second property he owns.  

The Guardia also revealed he had offered some of the stolen items for sale on mobile applications and websites.
