The Guardia Civil recently trialled sending round mounted police to patrol the many greenhouses in the area. This seems to have been a great success, inasmuch as it’s cut crime. So successful that the Guardia have announced their intention to resume patrols later this month.
However, they are a bit miffed that on Friday some joker broke into the police stables, opened the doors and shooed the police horses out into the fields.
It seems it took quite a few officers most of the day to track them all down. No horses were injured, apart from one who got a small scratch. It is rumoured that a new padlock has been brought.
