IF last November was the month in which your home or work place was robbed, then this might be your lucky week. The Guardia Civil arrested five people they suspect to be the perpetrators of 24 robberies, which took place in Alcudia and the port last year.
The arrests were made over the weekend and were linked to the robberies by a masked gang which took place in bars, restaurants and private homes.
Items stolen from those robberies which include computers, telephones, electronic equipment and fishing gear, as shown in the photograph, will be on display for owners to reclaim between January 13 and 22, 9am until 1pm, at the Guardia Civil barracks in Puerto Pollensa.
The investigation, code-named Operation Marmalade, has been ongoing since last November when an increase in robberies was noted by the Pollensa Judicial Police. The robberies caused significant damage to premises when forceful entry was made.
The five arrested were young men between the ages of 18 and 24 and it seems they were from the area.
They chose significant dates on which to commit their crimes, with Christmas Eve suffering three robberies whilst the premises were empty.
The investigation is ongoing and the police hope to make more arrests in the foreseeable future
