Man arrested in Paphos for building site theft

A 33-year-old man from Paphos was arrested on Monday after he was allegedly caught stealing by a private security officer at a construction site in the Yeroskipou area.    Electric wires and pieces of copper pipes were reportedly found in his possession.

The 33-year-old was spotted at the site by the security guard at around 7pm, along with a second suspect.  The employee immediately notified the police who went to the site but it was the security guard that managed to catch the alleged thief.

Police said a quantity of electric wires and copper pipes, which the construction site valued at around €500 were in his possession. An inspection later by the site’s manager estimated the damage caused by removing the wiring would cost around €10,000 to repair.

The second suspect managed to get away, according to police. A search of the first suspect’s home turned up nothing, police said.
