A row has broken out in Granadilla town with residents blaming the local authorities for insufficient security which has resulted in a wave of house robberies, some with violence, over recent months. Although the council itself says that it’s operating full security measures and cannot do more, locals hit back, demanding a promise both that the council would complain to the courts that some thieves who had been arrested had been released, giving the impression that they could act with complete impunuty, and that it would liaise with Granadilla Guardia Civil and Policía Local for residents to be told first hand what would be done to resolve the “unsustainable situation”. Residents say they will hold a demonstration outside Granadilla Ayuntamiento on 25 March to protest publicly about the crimewave the town is facing.
