A man is wanted in connection with the theft of nine solar water heaters early on Friday from an apartment building in Geroskipou, Paphos.
Police said the man was spotted loading the solar heaters on to a double-cabin truck outside an unoccupied apartment building, after they received a tip- off at around 1.40am.
The suspect fled the scene as soon as he saw the police officers arrive, and managed to escape, but they managed to catch the number of his registration plates. An arrest warrant was issued and police is searching for his whereabouts.
The value of the solar heaters was not estimated yet, police said.
