The Almuñécar Guardia Civil has arrested two people in relation to a series of break-ins in the town, specifically in the Vellila area.
The two suspects, two males aged 18 and 17, are accused of carrying out four burglaries and a theft, all carried out in recent weeks.
They allegedly climbed up in order to enter properties via balconies, either taking advantage of the balcony door having been left open, or, if not, forcing them open and thus gaining entrance.
Once inside, according to the police, they grabbed whatever was to hand in that room; handbags, mobiles, loose cash, wallets and credit cards. In one home they got away with a bicycle and a tablet.
The first break-in took place on the 17th of November while the occupants were sleeping and the following ones occurring on the 22nd, 29th and 30th, with the last happening on the 4th of December.
The police began investigations and narrowed down their search to the above mentioned suspect, who live in the area where the break-ins were taking place, so they began following them.
Obtaining a search warrant, they searched the garage belonging to one of their families and found three stolen handbags.
The were intercepted last weekend near Playa Tesorillo in possession of a bicycle, mobile and jacket that were later reported as stolen.
