The Civil Guard of the Region of Murcia has developed the operation 'HEREDA', an investigation that has resulted in the arrest, in Alhama de Murcia, of four people who are allegedly responsible for the crimes of fraud, falsehood documentary, misappropriation, usurpation of marital status, simulation of crime and belonging to a criminal organization.

In the records made in four homes in Alhama de Murcia and in a vehicle, the Civil Guard has seized instruments used for falsification and abundant documentation.

The investigation began last February, when two residents of Alhama de Murcia denounced that, despite being the heirs of an agricultural estate of a deceased relative, unknown persons were trying to seize it by submitting a purchase contract. false sale.

This first complaint was joined by others of the same nature and also referred to properties located in the municipality of Alhama de Murcia and Mazarrón, which made agents suspect the possible existence of an organized group dedicated to fraudulently obtaining goods estate.

The Civil Guard initiated the first inquiries to find out the 'modus operandi' used to legalize, with trickery and deception, properties of deceased persons, on behalf of others that had nothing to do with the legitimate heirs.

Apparently, the suspects had created a criminal plot aimed, in the first place, to find out which deceased people owned homes or farms and, of the latter, which were waiting to be made available to the corresponding heirs and, even, which lacked beneficiaries.

The Civil Guard, in collaboration with the Property Registry of Murcia, collected abundant documentation and evidence that focused the investigation on a first male suspect, Spanish, 32 years old, a resident of Alhama de Murcia and with a history of similar crimes who, apparently, he was leading the alleged criminal plot.

After a complex investigation the Benemérita found out that, through the forgery of deeds, purchase and sale contracts and other public and private documents, the suspects appeared in the corresponding official bodies to process and manage to register, fraudulently, all types of real estate , such as houses, flats, apartments and rustic or agricultural land.

To do this, they obtained valuable information on recently deceased persons who were documented as legitimate owners of the real estate they wanted to own, such as their descendants, heirs or other relatives, and then presented with the false documents made to consummate the scams.

Sometimes they passed themselves off as descendants or legitimate heirs and in others, through the presentation of false purchase and sale documents, they began the procedures to register those properties in their name.

In addition, on some occasion they physically occupied the properties and registered in them, eventually hiring home insurance and private security companies to provide this documentation along with false sales contracts in order to simulate their real possession.

The operation 'HEREDA' has culminated with the identification and detention of four people two men and two women, aged between 29 and 81 years, Spaniards and residents of Alhama de Murcia as alleged perpetrators of the crimes of fraud, forgery misappropriation, misappropriation of civil status, simulation of crime and belonging to a criminal organization.

The value of the properties that were claimed to be located in Alhama de Murcia, Alicante and Almeria, would exceed three million euros.

In the development of the police investigation have registered four homes in Alhama de Murcia and a vehicle, where they have seized instruments used to forge official documents and abundant documentation that was ready to carry out another multitude of scams.

Those arrested, the effects seized and the proceedings ordered have been made available to the Court of Instruction No. 1 of Totana (Murcia).
