Fake Crimes


National Police in Marbella last week announced that five people have been arrested in a month for a string of unrelated ‘fake crime’ scams. One of the incidents saw a delivery driver claim that thieves had broken into his vehicle and stolen watches valued at €6,170, but investigators found that the robbery didn’t take place, with the goods “improperly appropriated” by the driver. The four others were detained for feigning robberies and injuries, in the hope of insurance payouts.
