Credit cards stolen

Paphos police arrested five people yesterday in connection with two separate cases of card theft.
In the first instance, police arrested three men and a woman, aged between 27 and 36, on suspicion of stealing credit cards and cash from a Polish man.
The four were rounded up while using the card at a petrol station.
Officers found the stolen card, €445 in cash as well as Polish and British paper currency in the possession of a Georgian permanent resident, 36.
He claimed that, together with a Romanian friend, they beat up and mugged an unspecified number of Polish nationals.
The car, a grey BMW that was being filled with petrol, was driven by another Georgian man who had a Russian woman with him.
He tried to flee the scene on foot but was picked up by police, along with a Romanian national who had been waiting for him.
Some items found in the suspects’ possession had been stolen from two rooms of a hotel in Paphos, police said.
All four were remanded in custody for eight days.
In a separate case, a 22-year-old permanent resident of Paphos was remanded in custody for stealing a credit card and using it 11 times for petrol.
