Two more arrests in luxury cars case

Two more men, aged 33 and 46, have been arrested in the case of stolen luxury cars ring, police said on Thursday.

They are facing charges of conspiracy to commit a felony and receiving stolen goods. The two men were arrested in Limassol on Wednesday evening.

Also, a 27-year-old who was already in custody in connection with the same case was on Wednesday charged in writing, released and re-arrested by Famagusta district police in connection with a similar case.

The latest arrests bring the total in the vehicles theft case to six.

Three others aged 68, 40 and 31, were charged in writing and released last month.
The luxury vehicles recovered in the case are thought to have been stolen in the UK. With the help of the dealership, authorities determined that the chassis numbers had been changed.

The vehicles had been imported through Greece.

Limassol police have so far found eight stolen cars that were imported to Cyprus this way.
