Close Encounters of the Sharp Kind

Last weekend the municipal police of Motril were busy arresting people carrying large sharp objects with dubious intentions.

Being a weekend, they mounted a checkpoint near the access road for Candelón, stopping occasional vehicles. In one, they found a large knife, a replica pistol and, just for good measure, some drugs.

In the meantime another police patrol was busy in the Alcoholera district breaking up a brawl, relieving another gentleman of an equally wicked looking knife.

And just when Sunday came around and you expect things to quieten down, they separated another knife owner from his honed ‘life and joy.’

The weekend resulted in three arrests with all three of them for having illegal knifes and one for having drugs in his car.
