A 24-year-old man was arrested on Friday in connection with a burglary in Nicosia, which linked him to a further six prior burglaries, a police report said.
According to the report, at around 9:30am on Friday, police rushed to a house in Nicosia after a tip that a man was trying to force his way in.
Upon arrival, the policemen spotted a young pedestrian, who was approached and transferred to CID Nicosia for questioning.
It turned out the 24-year-old confessed not only to the burglary of the residence, but also several other recent robberies.
Further investigation linked the suspect to six cases of burglary and robbery, after the 24-year-old led police to an open area in Nicosia, where a military-issue rifle, a bayonet, two magazines and bullets were found.
He said these items had been stolen from a home he robbed on January 5, 2015.
A search conducted in the suspect’s car produced various items of evidence, believed to be the loot of robbery.
The 24-year-old pointed out the location of eight more robberies in Nicosia.
He was arrested and placed in custody in connection to the case.
Nicosia CID continues to investigate the case.
