Painter arrest on suspicion of multiple thefts

National Police have arrested a painter on suspicion of stealing jewellery and other valuable from houses where he worked.

Police monitoring the gold trading business noticed that one individual was a regular visitor to certain establishments to sell valuables. In fact, he made 62 visits in eighteen months and sold valuables to a total of €11,195.

Further investigation led to the discovery that the man worked for a company carrying out painting and carpentry work in Fuengirola, Mijas, Marbella and Cártama and took the opportunity to steal valuables when the owners were out of the house.

A total of ten such robberies have been attributed to the detainee although this figure could rise as the investigation progresses.
