A minor of only 15 years of age was again arrested by police officers after committing a new robbery in La Plata, the number 21 according to what this newspaper was able to count.

The teenager, who lives in Villa Elvira, was arrested yesterday along with his 13 and 14-year-old brothers, accused of stealing belongings from the house of a neighbor in the area.

The episode occurred yesterday afternoon, in the block of 76 bis between 118 and 119. Uniformed personnel from the 16th section arrived to that sector of the city, due to an apparent neighborhood conflict. However, upon arrival at the scene, they confirmed that it was an illegal act.

According to sources in the case, they confided to EL DIA, the minors would have broken into the home of a 75-year-old retiree, from where they took a SmartTV television.

When the criminals tried to move the electronic device to his house on foot, the front members of the area saw the sequence and decided to act.

First they called 911 to make the complaint. Then, they approached his property to try to recover what was stolen. It was at that moment that a neighborhood conflict began, with shouting, insults and threats.

Finally, the frontists managed to get the minors to return the television to its owner.

Minutes later, with the arrival of a patrol car, the officers arrested the three henchmen and took them to the police station in that jurisdiction.


According to judicial sources reported to EL DIA, the minor has already entered City police stations more than 20 times. In all cases, the Juvenile Justice provides that the next day it be handed over to his parents.

The same happens with another minor whom everyone knows as “Papichulo”. At the age of 17, he has already been arrested more than 30 times.

The teenager is on the run after committing a robbery on October 15 in a house at 16 and 82, in Altos de San Lorenzo, where the thief acted in a gang along with two other subjects, taking money and valuables.

Despite the raids carried out by members of the eighth police station and the Barrio Aeropuerto detachment, so far they have not been able to find the minor.
