Officers of the Guardia Civil this week arrested four people in Fuerteventura for committing robberies of cruise ship passengers at various points on the island over recent weeks. Officers also searched an apartment in Puerto del Rosario as part of this enquiry to look for more evidence of robberies from tourists.
Over recent weeks, several tourists travelling on different cruise ships docking in the capital reported these thefts to the local police, and the Policia Local and Guardia Civil officers began a joint operation to investigate and arrest those alleged to have carried out these thefts.
