Cash stolen from woman’s car

A man tricked a 48-year-old woman and stole some €5.000 in cash from her car, Limassol police said on Wednesday.

A police spokesman said the incident took place at noon on Tuesday.

The woman had disembarked her vehicle, which she had parked on Makarios Avenue near the intersection with Petros Tsiros Avenue, when she was approached by an unknown man who told her that she had dropped some money.

Mere seconds after she knelt to check for any missing money under her car, the woman realised the stranger had disappeared.

At the same time, she realised that an envelope containing £3.810 – roughly €5.000 – had been stolen from the passenger’s seat.

The money belonged to the company that employs the woman, police said.
