Limassol police probes World Cup tickets theft

LIMASSOL CID is investigating the case of the alleged theft of 688 World Cup tickets reported on Wednesday.

A 26-year-old ticket dealer from the UK had reported to police that the tickets worth around £120,000 (€148,000) were stolen from his car after it was broken into in Limassol.

According to the alleged victim, the incident happened just after noon when he parked his car to visit a shop leaving a laptop and a briefcase with the tickets inside. The thieves smashed the car window and took the valuables.

Limassol police spokesman Ioannis Soteriades said they are investigating the 26-year-old’s allegations in cooperation with Interpol to find out if the tickets were indeed in his possession and were not already sold elsewhere.

The 26-year-old, who could not provide the police with ticket serial numbers, claimed to be an online ticket agent and travelled from the UK to allegedly deliver the tickets to a company in Cyprus.
