Torrox burglaries under investigation

EXCLUSIVE by Rob Horgan

A SPECIAL task force has been set up to apprehend a group serial robbers following a spate of burglaries in the Pago Benamar area of Torrox.

The investigation team was established by the Guardia Civil in response to 15 reported burglaries in December.

Expats of all nationalities – as well as Spaniards – have been burgled, and the Guardia have warned people who travelled home for Christmas may have been purposefully targeted.

English expat Joy Floody was burgled at the start of December and is now appealing for neighbours to ‘look out for anything suspicious’.

“It is unbelievable that no one has been apprehended yet, considering the limited access to the area,” she said.

“No one in the area has seen any strange persons or vehicles so it is presumed they are sat hidden watching properties and breaking in during the day.

“The houses have been completely turned over with every drawer and cupboard emptied. They appear to be going for electrical items such as TVs, laptops, cameras, mobile phones and also jewellery.”
