Two Georgian nationals, a 33-year-old man and his sister, 31, were remanded in custody for eight days on Tuesday in connection with a string of burglaries, Limassol police said.
A 30-year-old man, also from Georgia, is being held for the same case. Police said they were seeking three more Georgian nationals – a man 33, and a couple aged 32 and 31.
The siblings were arrested in their flat where police found a large number of gold and jewellery. The suspects could not provide convincing explanation about their provenance, police said.
The 33-year-old was found in possession of a Greek passport, which was counterfeit. The man was staying on the island without a permit.
The two suspects were not cooperating, police said, but based on the valuables found at the flat the authorities said they have solved a number of burglaries.
