Petrol station owner says thieves stole €1.5m from his premises (updated)

Police on Tuesday were investigating a €1.5 million theft from a petrol station in Paphos, they said.

Located in Stroumbi, the owner said strangers broke into the petrol station when it was closed, between 5:30pm on Monday and 6:20am on Tuesday, stealing €1.5m in cash.

Evidence is already being collected and investigations are still ongoing. Police could not say why the owner had left so much cash on the premises but they were taking statements.

According to Paphos CID’s Michael Ioannou, the owner told police the cash was kept in a plastic box at the attic in the station.

The owner went on to say he had withdrawn the money from the bank, reportedly due to fears of a haircut and was not insured.
