Bank burgled but thieves leave empty-handed

Unknown individuals broke into a Paphos village co-operative but apparently left empty-handed, police said on Friday.

Authorities scrambled to the scene after the co-op’s alarm sounded at 3am.

The would-be thieves entered the branch in Holetria by opening a hole in the wall through the coffee shop next door.

It appeared however, that the perpetrators left empty-handed, police said.

A large vault where the money was kept had not been broken into.

The head of the community said it was the first time someone had broken into the co-op.

No serious incidents of theft and burglaries had been reported in Holetria, Kyriacos Papalazarou said.
