YOUTH crime appears to be on the increase in the Axarquia.

Police arrested a number of youths in three incidents in two days.

Four youths were arrested in Velez-Malaga, two of them minors, accused of breaking into and stealing items from four parked cars.

Just two days later, on July 12, two more minors were arrested in Velez-Malaga in an unrelated case for stealing from the local high school.

Meanwhile, in Rincon de la Victoria police arrested a 16-year-old girl for stealing a mobile phone.

The girl claimed she needed a mobile device and did not have the funds to purchase one, sources say.
