Residents say lack of police led to burglaries

  • At least 12 break-ins have occurred in the last two weeks

Residents of the Cantal neighbourhood in Rincón de la Victoria are blaming a recent spate of burglaries on the lack of police presence in the area.

At least 12 break-ins have occurred in the last two weeks and one neighbour, Juan Martín, told SUR that home owners are taking it in turns to patrol the area at night, but said that the crimes occur during the day when "most people are at work".
