Identity theft, two minors arrested

Two minors in Granada, both 14 years of age, have been charged with identity theft via the internet.

The two youngsters had managed to obtain the necessary passwords for an email account belonging to a girl, an adult, and had been chatting online as well as offering sex in the name of their victim.

The victim had complained to the Guardia Civil that she could no longer access her email account as the password had been changed and that messages were being sent out in her name. The police began an investigation and eventually tracked down the culprits.

The youths are due to appear in the Juvenile Court.
