The problem is that you can not stay in your home all day, and every day, and look after your property.
The incidence of house burglaries in the Mazarron region are far greater than I have ever see when I was living in the UK. True you have to be careful, but tourists or residents are victims, lack of effective police, a very poor working telephone system, poor street lighting and too many illegals contribute to this problem.
It would be a great comfort if we knew that the police were active against these criminals, but we know that the police, especially in my area, are lazy and disinterested in their work. They are more interested in where they can scam a free meal and drink, before they find a quiet place to sleep the day away.
