Paphos District Court

Two men aged 35 and 32 were remanded for eight days and two days respectively on Sunday by the Paphos court in connection with a spate of burglaries and car thefts in the district.

The court heard that the 35-year-old had been arrested on Saturday during a routine traffic stop in Yeroskipou. Checking the vehicle’s details, officers found that it bore false number plates and had been reported as stolen in December 2015 from the Paphos area.
