Although most of the residents of Vélez-Málaga are respecting the order of confinement due to the state of alarm, there are still some people who consider that nothing of the state of alarm goes with them.
Local Police officers of the municipality have denounced, just between yesterday afternoon and last night, a dozen people for breach of the confinement order that establishes the state of alarm decreed by the Government to try to control the expansion of the coronavirus . Disobeying this order can carry administrative penalties of between 601 and 30,000 euros or even prison, in extreme cases of citizen disobedience.
The Veleña Police even surprised a driver who tested positive for breathalyzer and who had been at a friend's house. This was not an excuse for him to go home with the attestation instruction for having tested positive, being summoned to be tried for a crime, in addition to the fine by law 4/15 and another because he had no past ITV.
The agents also intervened during the afternoon various narcotic substances to young people who were in a public park.
