Man remanded after tourists claim theft

A 32-year-old from Bulgaria was remanded in custody for five days by Famagusta district court on Saturday in connection with investigations into theft and the illegal possession of property.

According to Famagusta CID, three tourists reported Friday that between the hours of 4 and 9am unknown persons broke into the Ayia Napa apartment they were staying in and took two mobile phones and a watch.

Police investigations at the scene secured testimony implicating the 32-year-old Ayia Napa resident.

A search of the man’s house was carried out in which eight pairs of sunglasses, three watches, six phone chargers, a lady’s handbag, a pair of headphones, a key and a box with currency from various countries were found.

All the items, which are believed to have been stolen, were taken as evidence by the police.

The 32-year-old was arrested and held overnight before being taken to court for the remand hearing.
