Alhaurin el Grande town council has asked the Malaga provincial government for help to deal with a wave of recent robberies. There were three house break-ins on the night of January 6th, all of them apparently carried out by the same gang. The police suspect that the eastern European gangs are moving inland to escape increased police vigilance on the coast. Other towns in the Guadalhorce Valley are affected, with Coín reporting some 30 break-ins in recent weeks, all involving houses in the country just outside town.
