National police have arrested a thief in Velez-Malaga who is accused of robbing and stealing at least thirteen vehicles.

The investigation began following several complaints filed by the victims. All the robberies took place earlier this year in a specific geographical area and at a specific time of day when there were not many pedestrians on the road.

After an extensive police operation, officers managed to locate the alleged perpetrator and he was arrested in the early hours of February 15. At the time of his arrest, he was carrying numerous incriminating items, such as four bladed weapons, four screwdrivers, an adjustable wrench, a torch, gloves, a pair of secateurs and a wallet with documents belonging to another individual. Investigators then located the owner of the documentation, which was stolen from a vehicle the same night.

Investigators are continuing the corresponding procedure to determine whether the accused could have been involved in other similar acts committed in the area.
