Police recover stolen camera

Local police in Orihuela recovered a camera that had been stolen from a car on Saturday.

They spotted a man in a car park who was well known to them for several robberies in the past. As they approached him, he started fumbling about seemingly hiding something in his pockets which turned out to be a digital camera. The man claimed he had found the camera in a waste container but upon inspection the camera still worked and had several pictures on the memory card.

15032787 Having arrested the man, the police decided to scour the area and found this car with its door forced open. They have since traced the owner of the car and told him how to recover his stolen camera.

I’m not sure what type of camera it was but I would bet that the repair to the car will be a lot more than the value of the stolen goods to the thief.

How many times have we been told NEVER to leave anything which might appear valuable in clear view inside a car? Handbags, cameras, sat navs, laptops are all magnets to thieves. The damage they do stealing them will often be more than the goods they get away with.

Of course, I could be wrong, the camera could have been in the glove box but I somehow doubt it.
