Bell­re­guard-Gan­dia in­dus­trial es­tate bur­glar sought

Costa Levante News - - NEWS -

By Saman­tha Kett PO­LICE are hunt­ing for an uniden­ti­fied man who broke into a bar on the in­dus­trial es­tate off the Bell­re­guard-Gan­dia round­about in the early hours of Mon­day.

CCTV footage shows a masked in­di­vid­ual forc­ing up the metal blind, re­mov­ing some of the slats, on the premises in the Be­ni­eto re­tail park in the Myo Gan­dia sec­tion, where Leroy Mer­lin is based.

He is seen steal­ing a com­puter, a mo­bile phone, tablets, and wads of cash.

The own­ers called the po­lice later on Mon­day after they saw the dam­age when they went to open up.

It is not known whether other per­sons were in ca­hoots with the man caught on cam­era.

Na­tional Po­lice are ex­am­in­ing se­cu­rity footage from other, nearby com­pa­nies to try to get a clear shot of the per­son in­volved.

Any­one who be­lieves they may have seen some­thing sus­pi­cious should con­tact or visit their near­est po­lice sta­tion. A vil­lage in La Safor's pic­turesque Valldigna holds the record for the re­gion's high­est rain­fall in 2018, ac­cord­ing to the State me­te­o­ro­log­i­cal agency, AEMET. Barx, which sits on a hill­top and is home to the at­trac­tive ru­ral La Drova ur­ban­i­sa­tion, av­er­aged 1,471 litres of rain per square me­tre last year, which trans­lates to 147 cen­time­tres (4'10”). Some dis­tance away – in both senses – the sec­ond-high­est rain­fall in the re­gion last year was in Vi­lafranca (Castel­lón prov­ince) at 1,030 litres per square me­tre (103 cen­time­tres, or 3'4”). The re­main­ing three towns in the Valldigna val­ley – Beni­fairó, Si­mat and Tav­ernes – all reg­is­tered more than 1,000 litres of rain per square me­tre (a me­tre, or 3'3”). Over­all, La Safor was gen­er­ally wet­ter in 2018 than in the two pre­vi­ous years, even though an­nual rain­fall has been far lower than usual in the past five years or so.
