Jardin Del Mar V, Torrevieja

Welcome to the website for JDMV, Torrevieja

House Thefts on JDMV

Once again, summer´s here and so are the “walk in” burglars. on Tuesday of this week another set of holiday makers came down from the solarium to find strangers in their living room, they had previously asked if the property was for sale.

Of course, this was the “first time” they´d left the property gates unlocked. The thieves made off with the property keys, and jumped down to the property below and made off.

The thieves were described as 2 very well dressed and well spoken Moroccans, one wearing a white suit.

Please keep your property LOCKED at all times.

Dog Attacks Two Children in Torrevieja

Two children aged four and six were attacked by a Rottweiler without its obligatory muzzle in the Jardin de Mar Urbanisation of Torrevieja on Tuesday.

One of the children was only slightly injured, but the other suffered injuries to the legs and underwent surgery that lasted four hours. The dog has been taken to a local centre.

Police sources stated that the woman who owned the dog tried to prevent the attack but was unable to do so due to the strength of the animal, and suffered slight injuries herself.

Torrevieja Taxis Pirate Protest

The residents of JDMV were greeted to a noisy protest this morning. Following the latest incident in which Torrevieja taxi drivers tried to clamp down on the illegal, dangerous and potentially catastrophic illegal taxi business, the taxi drivers association has held a peaceful, albeit noisy protest through the city, to raise awareness of the plight of this ever growing, and often ignorant situation.

More than a hundred taxi drivers were set to take to the streets, parading through both the city centre and nearby urbanisations, sounding their horns, blowing whistles and escorted by the Guardia Civil.

The president of the Radio Taxi Torrevieja, Carlos Balbas, held a meeting with the Alderman for Transport, Tomás Arenas Bueno and general manager of the local police, Francisco Javier Minguez Parodi, in order to take measures to stop the action of these individuals engaged in public transport services without a license. The council of transport has been intensively involved in this matter in order to eradicate this problem.

The protest started on Saturday at 11:00 am, and will tour much of the city, so people get to see the message. The protest wants to make citizens aware of the danger of this practice for road safety and the erosion of jobs in the sector.

Any transport service which involves the exchange of money for travel IS illegal and could result in both the driver and passengers being prosecuted. Perhaps worse, in the event of an accident, it is quite possible that the insurance company protecting the vehicle will refuse to pay out. It is quite obvious that insurance companies do not want to part with money, why would they, so this could provide them with the ideal reason not to. If you are illegally engaged in these activities, one way or another, you and only you are responsible for the outcome.

Postal Thefts

As you are no doubt aware there have been a large amount of thefts from the post boxes on JDMV. A young female has been seen looking into EVERY post box on the fase on several occasions (and also at the boxes on JDMX), and when she realises that she´s being observed she quickly leaves.

Today, a short video of the girl was made as she looked through the boxes. When she realised that she was being filmed she again walked off and hid her face. The girl is a teenager, Hispanic in looks (but speaks with an Eastern European accent) has long dark hair that is tied with a single bobble. She also wears large dark sunglasses and sometimes a cream coloured blouse and trousers. She is believed to be a resident of JDMV, so this means that when the new post room is open she will have free range to go through the boxes in privacy.


Please be extra vigilant with your post and look out for this girl. The administrators have been advised of these activities.
