Police say they busted theft ring in Paphos

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.
