Cable Thefts

Cable Theft

Local authorities have asked the public of the municipality of Manilva for their cooperation with the wave of thefts of copper wire powering street lights.

The latest areas affected by these thefts are the promenade in La Colonia, La Noria, Los Flamencos areas, the entrance to El Castillo de La Duquesa via Los Granados and the San Luis de Sabinillas sports area, among others.

Robberies over the last month have cost the town hall over 10,000 € excluding the labour costs of municipal workers.

This also offers a bad image of the municipality as the areas with no lighting will remain that way until the town hall is able to repair the damage.

Residents have been asked to be vigilant because, although the local authorities are trying their best to keep the municipality under surveillance, in many cases it would be more effective if they had the help of local people to inform the police of any suspicious situations in manholes or in the road. To do this, anyone noticing strange behavior in this regard should call the local police at the following number: 952 890 945.
