British holiday makers are warned of the gangs of Benidorm who look up the drinks of tourists and then rob them when they have fainted
- Gangs use rape medicine to reach vacationers at the resort
- One target was found on a beach without his phone or wallet
- Locals have warned of pickpockets who actively hunt for holiday makers
British holidaymakers traveling to Benidorm to enjoy the sun and popular nightlife options have been warned of gangs in the area.
Tourists are said to be the target of gangs who drink their drinks with date-rape-style drugs and then rob them once they have fainted.
The alarming warning is because a tourist would have been awakened on a beach without his shoes, phone and wallet after allegedly being directed to a bar.
Local expats are now going to social media to issue warnings to managers who emphasize the resort's high crime rate.
The night sky in Benidorm is illuminated from the vibrant nightlife – however, tourists are warned of the danger of pickpockets
The sun reported that a Facebook group marked the incident with the vacationer found on the beach.
In a Facebook message they said: & # 39; This happened to a guy ….. His friends reported him missing. He had been entangled … trainers … telephone wallet etc was missing. He was found on the beach
& # 39; Please be careful … DO NOT LEAVE YOUR DRINK UNCRAFTED. & # 39;
The page also warns of pickpockets who actively hunt for vacationers by portraying themselves as sex workers.
Tourists at the resort have been warned not to leave their drinks unattended after criminals say they use drugs that contain rape.
They would gather at busy intersections in the Spanish resort and at home to make people who drank their way back to their hotels and accommodation.
The Spanish authorities would now act hard against the criminals who often come from Eastern Europe.
Earlier this year, a Romanian woman was arrested at the resort after stealing £ 400 from a tourist and for stealing a £ 5,000 watch from a retiree.
This is while another woman was also arrested after she took a wallet from another vacationer.
It is reported that many people have stolen their wallets at the resort during the night out
It has also been reported that men sometimes even dress up as women to dupe people at the resort and some tourists have reportedly stolen their possessions as soon as they step off their transfer buses.
A tourist said a friend was robbed earlier this year after leaving a popular bar at the resort.
He said: & I just ran away from Morgan & my mate, left 2 minutes before us, by the time he was robbed of everything by the prostitutes, men dressing up while women chased them. Pimps came from wherever the police saw us chasing, they stopped us and said it was careful tomorrow morning. & # 39;
The warnings come as vacationers in the area filmed smoke billowing from Sierra Gelada Mountain, which is located about 12 miles away from the popular Aqulandia water park in the resort.
The fire started earlier today for an unknown reason in the upper part of the Serra Gelada Natural Park, the emergency services said.
The worries were increased due to the dry conditions and the proximity to the Aqualandia water park, whereby the attraction was closed earlier than usual due to the emergency.
The fire could be seen in the Sierra Gelada Mountains, about 12 miles away from the water park
