Be careful around Las Chafiras and the Golf del Sur, because police sources say they are looking for a group of Romanians which over the last few days has been carrying out various robberies on tourists and local residents in the area. The thieves are focusing on wallets, cards, cash and documents of anyone who’s the least bit careless or distracted.
So far, robberies have been reported in a supermarket in the Llano del Camello industrial estate (which suggests either Mercadona or HiperDino), and in a bus stop in Golf del Sur. Reports suggest that the thieves operate in a group of six, four men and two women, and that they act rapidly, spending only half an hour or so in any location. There have been no arrests yet, so be on your guard. PV
