TWO MEN and a woman aged between 40 and 60-years old have been arrested in Callosa de Segura accused of stealing jewellery from a 93-year-old grandmother.
The value of the jewellery stolen is €15,000 and it has since been recovered.
Investigations began at the end of August when the Guardia Civil received reports that the jewels had been stolen from the safe kept by the elderly women who lived alone. The jewels had great sentimental value and belonged to various members of the family.
Officers began to collect information on anybody that had been in the woman’s home on the day of the reported robbery and right from the start suspicions fell on the victim’s grandson.
The jewellery was located in various gold trading shops in the Vega Baja and Baix Vinalopó and was made up of 25 pieces. Investigators verified that the jewels were sold by three different people, one of whom was the grandson and two of his friends.
