Illegal car network broken up in Alicante: "National Police have broken up an international network and arrested five Hungarians and a Spaniard, for the illegal trafficking in top of the range vehicles. The arrests were made in Orihuela and Torrevieja.
The vehicles were stolen in Hungary, or obtained at a low price from the owners with the later defrauding of insurance companies claiming a false theft, and then brought to Spain and registered using false ID documents.
The network altered chassis numbers to place the vehicles on sale in Spain at very competitive prices of about 30,000 €, around half their real price.
So far police have recovered ten vehicles and located some 30 more, in an investigation which has lasted more than a year, and which got underway in April last year when a vehicle from Hungary was intercepted in Murcia on false plates and with a changed chassis number."
