Those arrested, including two minors, are attributed the alleged responsibility for the crimes of burglary, theft, damage, disobedience to the authority's agent and against road safety
So far, the operation has resulted in the clarification of more than twenty crimes
The Civil Guard of the Region of Murcia, in the framework of the operation 'PALIER I', has dismantled a criminal group dedicated to the commission of robberies and thefts inside vehicles parked in the urban area of â€‹â€‹Cieza.
So far, six young people have been arrested, including two minors, and more than twenty crimes have been clarified.
Agents of the Benemérita specialized in prevention of citizen security began the operation as a result of numerous robberies with force and damages in vehicles, committed during the last days.
In order to prevent the commission of more criminal acts and to clarify those already completed, the Civil Guard intensified the operational investigations and monitoring of a group of young people, suspected of being behind the authorship of the crimes investigated.
In addition, the investigations were complemented by the reinforcement of citizen security patrols and with operational surveillance daily and in different time zones in the urban area of â€‹â€‹the municipality ciezano.
The technical-ocular inspections carried out by the agents on the vehicles in which the robberies had been committed made it possible to find out the modus operandi used.
The criminal activity began with the selection of a vehicle that was parked on public roads.
The hourly schedule of action was indifferent, although there have been more cases at night.
At the time of committing the robbery they tried to take advantage of the fact that no one was traveling on the public highway, to avoid being surprised.
The crime was usually materialized using force against one of the locks or directly against the door of the vehicle by lever.
Its objective was the subtraction of different supposedly valuable objects from the interior of the vehicles that were transported and could be commercialized easily.
Once all the necessary evidence was obtained and after the identification of a large group of young people who were allegedly linked to the commission of the crimes investigated, a search device was established that has culminated, during the last few days, with its location, arrest and subsequent judicial disposal.
The established surveillance devices allowed to stop some of the members of the group in flagrante when they were forcing the door of a vehicle that was parked in the street.
In the superficial register of those arrested, cloth gloves were used to avoid traces of fingerprints, as well as handcrafted utensils to force the locks and electronic closing devices of the doors.
From the investigation carried out so far it is clear that the six detainees are behind the alleged authorship of more than twenty crimes of robbery with force, theft and damages.
Some detainees resisted the police action at the time of the interventions that were made in the identifications and arrests, so they are also attributed the alleged responsibility of disobedience to agent of the authority.
The operation continues open, not ruling out the arrest of more people related to the facts investigated.
The arrested persons of Spanish and Moroccan nationality, aged between 18 and 21 years old, residents of Cieza and with a large criminal record, the seized objects and the diligences instructed have been made available to the Court of Instruction of Cieza and the Office of Minors of Murcia.
