Two arrested for breaking and entering in Jimena

The Guardia Civil arrested two people last weekend accused of illegally occupying a home in Jimena. The GC received a call from a family saying that they had been absent briefly and when they returned they found the locks changed and people inside their house with no intention of leaving. On arriving at the property, the Guardia arrested J. M. A., 42, and E. I. S. R., 26, who are accused of allanamiento de morada (breaking and entering). The two were detained for the same reason ten days earlier. According to the Spanish Penal Code (Article 202), breaking and entering or being in a property without the owners' permission carries a prison sentence of between six months and two years; if there is violence or intimidation, the sentence can go to three years.
