THE Guardia Civil have released their statistics on incidents and arrest rates at the Valencian Communities most recent music festival, Arenal Sound in the Castellon province. 

33 people were arrested at the four-day event, 24 for theft including a woman who stole 18 mobile phones, an increasing form of crime at music festivals where young people are carrying around devices often worth several hundred euros.

There were five people arrested for selling drugs, including cocaine, speed, hashish, marijuana and crystal meth; 317 people were found to be in possession of drugs for personal use, many coming to light among the over 2,000 drug tests carried out.  The most serious single incident was an accusation of aggression and sexual assault which is under investigation.
