COPPER cable worth €11,000 was stolen from an open-air storage facility in Limassol, police said on Tuesday.
The cable, measuring 700 metres, was stolen from the fenced area, which hosts company warehouses, at around 3am.
The company uses the space to store cables.
Meanwhile in Nicosia, police arrested a 59-year-old man suspected of stealing copper pipes from a supermarket parking lot.
Reports said police caught the man red handed after they were tipped off at around 10.30am.
Not far from where the man was found cutting copper pipes using a saw, officers spotted his pickup truck loaded with three air compressors, copper pipes and other items worth €1,200.
It is thought that all the items are the product of theft.
