Wedding items worth €90,000, including 60 bride’s dresses, stolen in Larnaca

Sixty wedding dresses and other wedding accessories, such as tiaras, wreaths, and shoes, worth over €90,000 were stolen from a store in downtown Larnaca, a police report said on Friday.

According to the report, the 47-year-old owner reported that, between 8 pm Thursday and 8:30 am Friday, unidentified robbers broke into her store and stole 60 wedding dresses, 100 tiaras, 15 bustiers, five wedding wreaths, and five pairs of shoes.

The woman said the stolen goods were worth over €90,000.

CID police rushed to the scene and established that the robbers entered the store through the front door, after removing the safety lock with a sharp instrument.

The scene was swept for fingerprints and police collected evidence, which was forwarded for forensic examination.

Police are expected to sift through CCTV footage of nearby or adjacent shops, in a bid to identify the perpetrators. The store had no alarm system or CCTV, but was insured.
