A habitual robber, who specialised in 95 car thefts since being released from a Murcia region prison at the start of April, has been put in front of an Alicante judge, and granted bail. 

The 41-year-old man, who has been arrested a total of 111 times, mainly for burglaries,  was picked up by the National Police in connection with the car break-ins that have taken place over the last six weeks in Alicante City. His actions alone led to a 54 percent rise in car thefts in Alicante last month. 

The prosecutor did not request custody, with the court demanding the man appear every 15 days in court, after the police accused him of smashing four car windows in one night on Tuesday.

The thief is nothing but consistent, as he was arrested on April 24th on the back of police reports from Benidorm and Villarreal over a variety of vehicle thefts, and when he was searched, a large selection of car keys was discovered on him. He’s also got court appearances beckoning in Castellón and València City.
