In Palma, two teenagers were spotted by officers breaking into a car. They fled the scene on foot and were tracked down nearby before being arrested.
A woman was detained for fleeing Son Espases Hospital after being diagnosed with the Covid-19 virus. Leaving without the consent of a doctor is currently an offence Spain.

In Santa Margalida a day-care centre for the elderly was robbed thieves who ransacked the shelves full of food, before fleeing with more than €8,000 worth of household appliances.
