Falsified Boat Papers

A 54-year-old man was arrested for allegedly having falsified the documentation for his pleasure craft, which he had registered as a fishing boat.

The incident occurred around 15.00h one Friday in the Caleta de Vélez.

The reason that this came to light was because he had anchored his 4-metre long craft only eight metres from the beach, which was causing alarm amongst the bathers.

Because of the concern generated, one of of the beach users called the police; it was the boat owners undoing. They took one look at the unlikely paperwork and arrested the man.
