A MAN has been arrested by the Guardia Civil for deliberately scratching a number of cars parked along a road in Crevillente.
The middle aged man has already appeared in court charged with four incidents that took place over last weekend in Calle Santisima Trinidad and Avenida de Madrid.
Both the Local Police and the Guardia Civil received official complaints from the cars owners, who immediately looked at recordings made by CCTV cameras in the area. They spotted the alleged vandal carrying out his crimes, certainly in the Avenida de Madrid area, and according to reports is someone who suffers from mental disorders.
Local Police have been quick to point out that in recent months; there has been a noticeable reduction in the amount of cars that have been wantonly vandalised in this way; something that had been quite common before. It’s been put down to the clampdown on the groups of especially young people allowed to gather in the streets and drinking alcohol at events known as the ‘botellon’.
