This is a former employee who, allegedly, was made with a master key to remove appliances and computer materials
The hotel was closed to the public since last September because of the torrential rains that caused flooding in the coastal municipality
The Civil Guard of the Region of Murcia has developed an investigation, framed in the 'Plan Improvement Security Sector Commerce', which has resulted, so far, with the arrest of a person as the alleged author of the crime of robbery with force in a Los Alcazares hotel.
The investigation began last November, when the Civil Guard had knowledge of the robbery committed in a hotel in the municipality of Los Alcázares, where various household appliances and computer materials were stolen.
The researchers found that the establishment was closed to the public since September last year, due to the torrential rains that caused flooding in the municipality.
The ocular inspection of the building made it possible to find out that access to the enclosure had occurred through one of the emergency doors and that the attackers had located a strategically hidden master key, with which they could easily access the rooms, as well as Hotel offices.
These indications focused the investigation work on the identification of people related to the establishment, until, finally, a former hotel worker was identified as the main suspect.
Once its participation has been determined, the Civil Guard has located and detained a 36-year-old male, Spanish national and resident of Los Alcázares, to whom the alleged authorship of the crime of robbery with force is attributed.
According to the investigation, after seizing several televisions, coffee makers and computers that were in the rooms and in the offices, apparently, he introduced them in a container that was in the garage of the building to discreetly remove them from the enclosure. .
This container was located, already empty, in a nearby street.
The arrested and the proceedings have been made available to the Court of Instruction number 4 of San Javier (Murcia).
The investigation remains open.
