A GROUP suspected of being behind 27 break-ins across Spain have been arrested in Castellon.
The fifteen Spanish group members are accused of burglaries, forgery, belonging to a criminal group, identity theft and other crimes.
Police investigators believe the group could also be involved in another 37 burglaries.
The group members allegedly broke into homes in quiet areas mainly in Aragon, Cataluña, Valencia and Andalucia, stole jewellery and other small items and quickly sold them on.
Homes, car-hire and jewellery dealers’ shops were searched after the arrests, and two illegal marihuana farms were found.
Items confiscated by the police include weapons, electronic devices, tools, watches, jewellery and collectors’ items.
