PALMA DE MALLORCA, 17 (EUROPA PRESS)
The National Police have arrested a 51-year-old man for renting a house in the center of Palma and using it as a hotel to accommodate tourists.
In a press release, the agents explained that he had been arrested for the crimes of fraud, usurpation and coercion. The alleged perpetrator, far from being satisfied with the profits, pretended that he left the house when the expiration of the contract was near.
Later, he illegally occupied it and changed the electricity contract to guarantee the electricity supply in case the owner did not pay the bills. Despite everything, he continued to use the house as a hotel for tourists.
In addition, during the state of alarm, the activity continued without any type of guarantee or hygienic measure, which has accelerated police actions.
