| In San Javier | They are attributed the alleged responsibility of the crimes of simulation of crime They reported being victims of two thefts and one robbery with violence and intimidation The alleged intention of the deception was to collect from the insurance company or to apologize to their relatives for the disappearance of their assetsThe Civil Guard of the Region of Murcia has developed the 'SIMDE' operation, an investigation that began to clarify several complaints of theft, which has culminated in the investigation of three complainants as alleged perpetrators of the crime of simulation crime. The investigations began when several residents of San Javier reported to the Civil Guard that they had been the victim of crimes of theft and robbery with violence. One of the victims reported having been the object of the theft of a wallet on public roads, another, of the theft of a moped and tools from his home and, a third, of the robbery with violence, which occurred on public roads, of his mobile phone . In order to obtain evidence that would lead to the clarification of the facts, the location of the alleged perpetrators and the recovery of the stolen objects, the Civil Guard initiated an investigation, for each of the cases, which finally presented a common pattern, the alleged falsity of the reported facts. The facts falsely reported did not go unnoticed by the Civil Guard investigators, who were able to provide clear evidence that the crimes never occurred. The investigations carried out around these complaints revealed certain incongruities that were finally unmasked when the investigators found that all of them had been presented with the alleged intention of either defrauding insurance companies, or making a familiar apology for the disappearance of their assets. The 'SIMDE' operation has culminated in the investigation of three men, aged 22, 42 and 51, who have been prosecuted as alleged perpetrators of simulated crime. The persons investigated and the proceedings brought have been made available to the Investigating Court of San Javier (Murcia). La Benemérita informs citizens that reporting a crime that has never been committed carries criminal consequences, in addition to generating serious social alarm when it comes to violent crimes, and unnecessary use of the Security Forces and Bodies that must investigate them.
