A 33-year-old man from Paphos was remanded on Wednesday for three days and is facing charges of conspiracy to commit a crime, theft and malicious damage.
The man was arrested on Monday after he was spotted at a construction site in the Yeroskipou area by a security guard, along with another suspect who managed to escape. In his possession police found electric wires and pieces of copper pipes, they said.
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.
