In the robberies numerous items were stolen, including jewellery, money, and farming tools, which the man is thought to have sold for scrap metal. 

The police investigations began after a series of burglaries with a similar modus operandi were reported in the area. After examining the different crime scenes, police officers found fingerprints, which led to the presumed perpetrator of the burglaries. 

The accused, a 44-year-old Spanish man, was located and arrested in Nerja, before being transferred to the police station while he awaits trial.
