Stolen piece of Roman mill recovered


POLICE have recovered a piece of a Roman olive mill stolen from a property in the Rubiarte area of Berja in June last year and have opened an investigation into the suspected thief.

Police believe the robber used heavy machinery and a lorry to move the archaeological piece, which weighs between 400 and 500 kilos.

Berja council has now taken over responsibility for the piece, which is registered with the Junta de Andalucia’s Culture department territorial delegation, and which is valued at €850.
