A couple from Turre, plus a female friend, are all looking at three years in jail after they were arrested for trying to sell a storeroom as a real house to the aunt of the female friend.
They managed to flog the home for 177.000 euros, but when the aunt turned up she realised it was a hut in a field and the photos she’d seen were false. The hut was valued at around 20.000 euros, field included, and had planning permission (as a storeroom in a field).
She proceeded to complain to the Authorities who took their usual grave stance on the matter, and who arrested the three crooks. They are facing five years apiece in jail plus damages and refunding the cash.
