Following an investigation that lasted about six months, triggered by seven house thefts that took place in Albufeira, between April and October this year, it was possible to find that the suspect entered the homes through his ability to climb and accessing places inaccessible to most citizens.

In the course of the proceedings, a home search warrant was complied with, which resulted in the suspect being arrested and in the recovery of material that had been removed from homes.

The detainee, who had a criminal record for the same type of crime, was present on 25 October at the Faro Judicial Court, and the coercive measure of pre-trial detention was applied to him and was taken to the Silves Prison.
