These are figures form the first 9 months of 2020 and the highest 18 per cent figure relates to intentional homicide or murder.
The figures read like this, reported crimes down from 61,076 to 50.087, that is the registered drop and whilst there may be some COVID- 19 Influence involved in these figures, they do represent a drop, which is always welcome.
Crimes related to drug trafficking rose slightly by 1,4 per cent, and overall, the Costa del sol saw decreases in crimes from 19 to 23 per cent from Estepona to Torremolinos.
