A SECURITY guard at an exclusive urbanisation has been arrested in connection with the theft of €1,500 of jewellery.

Police detained the suspect after it was discovered the alarm system at the Sotogrande property had been switched off at the time of the burglary, without the owners’ knowledge.

It emerged the alarm codes were held in a safe in the gatehouse, while the guard was found to be friends with a worker in a La Linea gold shop which bought the jewellery.
