Following a Facebook post where a woman noted that several houses in Marsaskala were being robbed, Mayor Mario Calleja has reacted by stating that Police patrols in the area will be increased.

On a Facebook post, Calleja explained to the residents that the Local Council is not the Authority responsible for apprehending the culprits. However, he added that high ranking officers in the Malta Police Force are aware of the situation and are working on resolving the situation. In fact, he mentioned that last night, police vehicles were spotted patrolling the locality.

The Mayor insisted that the residents’ duty is to pass any relevant information to the Council or directly to the Police.

The person responsible for the original post insisted that these crimes are installing fear in the residents. She appealed for action to be taken before anything else happens.
