Police on Wednesday afternoon arrested two 15-year-old boys and were seeking two more, 16, in connection with a moped theft in Limassol.

While the owner was reporting the theft to police a 15-year-old was brought into the station after he was caught riding a moped without a helmet, insurance, and a driving licence.

The owner recognised the moped as his and said it was damaged and had items stolen from it.

When questioned, the 15-year-old claimed he had bought the vehicle. He named another 15-year-old with whom he had negotiated the sale of the bike, which supposedly belonged to two 16-year-olds.

Police proceeded to identify and arrest the second 15-year-old and are trying to identify the two 16-year-olds.
