The arrest of a Bulgaria man on Monday night appears to have led to a ring of thieves stealing electronic equipment, police said on Wednesday.
The Bulgarian man, 45, was collared within hours of a Kissonerga resident having his laptop stolen from his home. The computer was traced through GPS tracking.
The suspect said he had been given the laptop as a gift. They said he had named a 35-year-old compatriot as the giver. He was also arrested at his flat in Yeroskipou.
Police said a search of the first Bulgarian man’s house uncovered six more laptops, mobile phones, watches, cameras and other electronic equipment value at around €20,000.
They said the 45-year-old claimed he bought the items on the internet but the police said they had already linked some of the evidence in two cases to burglaries in Peyia.
Police are also searching for a third Bulgarian man. The first two were remanded for six days by the Paphos court.
