The Civil Guard dismantled a criminal group dedicated to the theft of artichoke in Torre Pacheco (11/02/2019)

So far the alleged authorship of three criminal acts is attributed to them

The Civil Guard of the Region of Murcia has developed the operation 'Alcadolo', an investigation aimed at clarifying several crimes of theft of products from the countryside on farms in the municipality of Torre Pacheco, which has resulted in the dismantling of an integrated criminal group by five people, settled in the town of Pachequera and to which is attributed, so far, the alleged authorship of three crimes of theft.

The proceedings began last December, when the Civil Guard detected an increase in the subtraction of products from the field in several farms in the municipality of Torre Pacheco, apparently due to the high market price of some products such as artichokes.

The civil guards made the first inquiries on the farms where the products had been stolen, in order to collect all possible signs about their authors and the illicit way of acting.

The investigators have been able to verify that after the authorship of the investigated criminal acts was a group of people who resided in localities next to the assaulted farms.

Illicit activity was carried out when moving to one of the targeted farms with one or several vehicles and leaving in place those who were responsible for materializing the theft for later, and taking advantage of the night, collect the product thus reducing the possibility of being detected.

Once all the members of the criminal group were identified and located, the Benemérita established a search device that has culminated with its location and detention / investigation, as alleged perpetrators of theft crime.

So far, the disbanded criminal group is allegedly responsible for three crimes of larceny committed in the pachequeras districts of El Jimenado and Dolores de Pacheco, although their implication in other criminal acts is not ruled out.

The investigation shows that those now arrested, after the theft of products from the field, allegedly, were distributed in weekly street market stalls.

The detained / investigated four men and a woman, neighbors of Torre Pacheco and some of them with antecedents for similar crimes and the educated diligences have been put at the disposal of the Court of Instruction of San Javier (Murcia).
