THIEVES are still at in Mallorca despite the State of Alarm lockdown restrictions.
In the last few days there have been four arrests for break-ins at properties in Palma and Alcudia.
Police detained a 20-year-old suspected of forcing his way into a home in the island capital in the early hours of Wednesday morning after catching him red-handed.
Two plainclothes officers out on patrol spotted two men going into the property, and then heard a loud noise. One of the thieves ran out shortly afterwards and the other threw a bag onto the ground and hid behind a van.
The officers cuffed him after confirming the property’s door had been forced open using a screwdriver and a knife and that cupboards and drawers inside the home had been turned upside down.
In Alcudia the Guardia Civil arrested three suspects for stealing items worth more than €8,000 from a home.
In this case a call from a neighbour alerted the authorities to a possible break-in. When Guardia arrived along with a Local Police patrol they found thieves had forced their way through one of the doors.
A search of the surrounding area led to the discovery of gloves and an iron bar between some trees and close by an open vehicle, with no-one inside, but more gloves, balaclavas and tools.
A week’s investigation led to the three detentions. It turned out the robbers had gone into the property several times, getting their hands on items including skis, a jet-ski and bikes.
