Police arrest burglary suspects (Updated with remand)

A 27-year-old woman and her partner, 29, in Paphos were remanded for four days on Thursday in connection with burglary and theft.

The woman was arrested after a 61-year-old foreign national reported to police that the home of her neighbour, who was abroad at the time, had been burgled between January 9 and 13.

The 61-year-old was looking after the house during her neighbour’s absence.

Police found out that two guitars – one red electric – and a television set, all worth €1,600 had been stolen from the house.

During the investigation, police were led to the 27-year-old woman who was arrested after various valuables, including what appeared to be the stolen guitars, were found in her home.

Police said they found a red electric guitar, an acoustic one, jewellery, two tablets, one laptop, seven mobile phones, 24 ladies’ watches, a television set, and a crowbar.

The woman could not provide officers with a satisfactory explanation concerning the items and she was arrested.

The stolen items were identified by the 61-year-old.

Police said they also wanted to question the woman’s partner who they arrested later in the day.

The couple had previous run-ins with Paphos police.
