THE National Police have arrested a 62-year-old woman after they found her attempting to set her mother’s home on fire in Palma de Mallorca, Spain.
As reported by the police, in the early hours of Tuesday morning (December 3) officers were notified by the 112 emergency services that a woman had breached the conditions of her restraining order which was obtained by her mother.
As officers arrived to the apartment block in the Es Mercat destrict, they detected a strong smell of smoke coming from inside of the building. Rushing upstairs, they discovered the daughter on the landing outside of her mother’s home, where she was burning several pieces of cardboard in an attempt to start a fire. An officer then proceeded to restrain the woman as another put out the small blaze.
A later search of the hotel room where the woman was staying uncovered various incriminating documents which not only included falsified documents but also evidence that the daughter had set fire to her mother’s car on November 26.
The mother and daughter have had a turbulent past where numerous incidents have involved the National Police. Previously, the mother made five complaints against her daughter after she attempted to become her power of attorney through falsifying documents.
On another occasion the woman contracted an elderly woman to pretend to be her mother so that she could change the bank details of her pension so that it would be paid into her own account. She has also been arrested for false accusations of abuse where she claimed her mother had abused her.
As Euro Weekly News understands the woman has been detained in custody where she has been charged with breaching the court protection order, arson, coercion, fraud and simulation of a crime.
