NATIONAL POLICE reported the case of a break-in at a property in the Las Gonzalas area of Almeria City is now solved.
A 30-year-old man is under arrest for stealing a water pump and a paint gun with a combined value of more than €1,000 after evidence gathered at the scene of the crime led to the identification of him as the thief.
The break-in took place in the middle of May. The property owner told police someone had got into a garage and storeroom.
There were clear signs someone had had a rummage through the inside of a car parked inside, although nothing appeared to have been taken. It also looked as though someone had been poking around at the batteries of a lorry, which was also parked there.
Both the pump and the paint gun were missing.
The arrested man has an extensive police record.
