Gang of burglars arrested

CÁDIZ (Agencies) The Guardia Civil reports the arrest of a gang of burglars that allegedly specialized in house robberies in the Barbate, Zahara de los Atunes and Vejer area. The gang was supposedly headed by a minor who, 'taking advantage of the false impunity ascribed to his age', climbed into homes from the ground floor even when the house was occupied. They supposedly stole mostly jewelry and electric/electronic equipment of all sorts, which was later sold at pawn shops and jewelers to buy drugs. The GC believe the gang is responsible for at least 25 such robberies. Stolen valuables were found at three addresses in Cádiz and many items have been identified by their owners. The gang, the number of members of which has not been revealed, is now 'at the disposal of the courts'.
