They are accused of misappropriation, fraud and theft. According to police, this group set up a luxury car rental company which ‘leased’ the vehicles though other companies. These would later declare bankruptcy but not return the cars to their actual owners. 

In a first phase of the investigation the National Police located in Marbella two cars reported as stolen and valued at €133,800 and €120,000 and, after analysis of the documentation involved, the agents realised the cars were being rented out through social networks. 

Following a digital trail they recovered a total of 11 cars, which they say had been fraudulently obtained from companies in Germany.
