The Guardia Civil, as part of the police operation, Tosta Rica, have arrested two Romanians and charged two others with break-ins in the Nerja Area.
The gang is allegedly made up of three Romanian men, aged between 25 and 28, and a Romanian woman, whose role it was to strike up friendships with intended targets.
Most of the burglaries took place in one particular area of Nerja from which the gang managed to reportedly accrue 10,000 euros in booty. The trouble was that they were not content to just take what they wanted, but also reportedly indulged in disproportionate damage to the homes.
