Army assault rifle stolen

A Paphos resident reported to police that unknown persons broke into his home and stole an army issue assault rifle and ammunition.

The theft occurred between August 7 and 11, while the man was abroad. The culprits took the G3 weapon along with 200 rounds and five ammunition magazines.

Assault rifles are issued to National Guard reservists and are meant to be kept in safe places at home. Military authorities tell reservists to keep the bolt hidden separately to prevent the weapon from being used in case of theft.
