On the night of 17th May 2014 at 03:00, the night guard of Quarteira, caught in the act a man aged 45 years stealing non-precious metals.

The man was in the process of stealing the various metal items from the warehouse of Sandomania Coffee, located at Rua Vasco da Gama, when he was intercepted by a night guard.

The man was subsequently found to be possession of additional material, namely iron pipes, electric material and taps. The GNR confirmed that these had been stolen from a Beauty Institute, which adjoins the aforementioned property. The culprit entered by scaling the wall.

Among the stolen material, the iron pipes were found to be disconnected from a water system therefore causing a loss of around € 300.
