POLICE arrested a 34-year-old woman in Barcelona after she called more than 20 times with bomb warnings.

Using different sim cards and phone numbers, the woman claimed there were bombs planted in hospitals, malls, bus stations and at the airports of Barcelona, Almeria and Malaga.

After an investigation into the calls, the police discovered that the woman had also been stealing men’s identities after meeting them online – she had used bank details to purchase further mobile devices to make the threatening calls.
