Arrests Increase in Malaga Province

The number of people being attested in Málaga has increased to 13,300 a year, more than in any other Andaulcian province.

The increase in crime in the province is being seen across the board, according to a study published by the Andaucian Crime Observatory.

Crimes against people were up 50% in 2004.Some experts say that the high concentration of the foreign population has favoured an increase in crime.

Five municipalities in the province are among the top 30 for foreign residents in Spain ? the city, Mijas, Fuengirola, Torremolinos and Marbella.
