Petrol station employee remanded for false robbery claim (Updated)

Petrol station employee arrested

Limassol court on Wednesday remanded for six days a 29-year-old man who had falsely reported that he was robbed of the takings from the petrol station where he was employed while on his way to the bank to deposit the money.

The 29-year-old Limassol resident told police that at around 9am on Tuesday a hooded person attacked and beat him while he was in his parked car in Ayia Phyla, grabbing a bag containing €54,275, the proceeds of the station where he works.

He claimed he was waiting outside the bank in order to deposit the cash.

An arrest warrant for the man was issued after it transpired during the course of the investigation that the man’s complaint was false and that he had in fact conspired with another person to steal the money.

The man continues to maintain he was robbed though police say witness statements contradict his claim.

Limassol CID are continuing investigations.
