THE National Police have arrested a man on suspicion of committing a string of break-ins at shops in Palma.
Following multiple complaints from store owners in the capital, agents from the Robbery Group initiated an investigation. The thefts were committed between September and October of this year with the same method and always at dawn.
The alleged suspect, a 19-year-old Spanish national, entered the shops by breaking the exterior glass with large stones. The first robberies occurred on September 17 and 18, when a cafeteria and offices in the Vivero neighbourhood were targeted, followed by a break-in at a cafeteria in s’Escorxador. Subsequently, other establishments in Son Ferriol were burgled between October 12 and 17, generating unease within the community. Residents complained about lack of security in the neighbourhood, asking for more police to be deployed on the streets.
If someone has been the victim of a robbery of similar characteristics, they can contact the Robbery Group of the National Police in Palma.
