ALM Calle BikiniA Romanian woman has been arrested in Almuñécar, accused of stealing an expensive watch using the ‘hug’ method, which is a form of pickpocketing.

It was an off-duty Policía Nacional officer, spending Semana Santa in Almuñécar, who is said to have witnessed the theft and called in the Policía Local.

The incident, which took place on Calle Bikini, led to the arrest of D.B. and the return of the watch, valued at 5,000 euros, to its rightful owner.

The ‘hug’ method consists of the thief approaching the victim, nearly always and elderly person, with the excuse of asking them something, and then in ‘gratitude,’ they embrace the victim and simultaneously liberate them of their valuables.
