For instance,the Policía Local confiscated eleven tonnes of fruit and vegetables thanks to an operation to crack down on hawking.
Within the same campaign they confiscated 1,692 pirated DVD’s of films and music albums, together with over a thousand false, name-brand items of clothing.
The main points where the police have concentrated their efforts have been the weekly street markets on Plaza de San Agustín and on the Paseo de los Álamos. The summer markets on the Paseo Marítimo Rey Balduino on Playa de Poniente also received “police scrutiny.”
Roadside hawkers were also targeted along the N-340 and the N-323 where they pass within municipal police jurisdiction.
The police moved in on 46 occasions in Motril, 22 time in Torrenueva and twice in Carchuna and Calahonda.
