Knockout Gas Robberies debunked: There is a wave of burglaries on the Costa right now. Stories of “knockout gas” are circulating once again. This is almost certainly not the case. To fill a large bedroom  with a gas to the concentration required to put you under so deep you wouldn’t hear intruders would require a tanker truck of highly regulated gas. Such a quantity would cost way more than a single robbery would net. When the Russians wanted to knock out an auditorium of hostage holding terrorists, they used gas before attempting a rescue. The identity of the gas was never disclosed, although it is believed to have been a narcotic, a fentanyl derivative such as carfentanil. It overdosed everyone, killing hundreds. If a less lethal option were available the Russians would surely have gone with that instead. So far there have been no reports of burglars killing anyone with gas, although some thieves have used chloroform soaked rags held over mouths to knock out victims; that is very different from gassing a room.  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Moscow_theater_hostage_crisis
The Royal College of Anesthetists issued a statement last year amid claims that Britons were being gassed and burgled in motor homes.
It read: “Despite the increasing numbers of reports of people being gassed in motor-homes or commercial trucks in France, and the warning put out by the Foreign Office for travelers to be aware of this danger, this College remains of the view that this is a myth.
“It is the view of the College that it would not be possible to render someone unconscious by blowing ether, chloroform or any of the currently used volatile anaesthetic agents, through the window of a motor-home without their knowledge, even if they were sleeping at the time.
“If there was a totally safe, odourless, potent, cheap anesthetic agent available to thieves for this purpose it is likely the medical profession would know about it and be investigating its use in anaesthetic practice.”


Taxi/airport transfer: Can anyone recommend an English speaking taxi/airport transfer service that can collect my five visitors from Malaga airport and take them to our house in Torre del Mar? I would like to book this in advance for them for mid July. Many thanks everyone, Kerry. kerry.mashford@gmail.com, Torre del Mar.
