Stolen petrol station pay machine located

Reports of draconian action over fuel purchased in the north proved to be exaggerated

A pay machine that was stolen from a Paphos petrol station early Thursday and the mini bus used to transport it were located in Yeroskipou on Friday.

The vehicle and the pay machine were located near the water park in Yeroskipou, police said.

The pay machine was stolen from a Paphos petrol station, early Thursday when the shop was closed. Perpetrators backed the mini bus into the €12,000-machine before making off with it. The machine had €670 in it.

An attempt was also made earlier on the same day – at 3am – to steal a pay machine from a Peyia filling station, police said.

The perpetrators- who have not been identified yet – appear to be the same in both cases, police said after going through the footage of the two petrol stations’ surveillance systems.

Police are investigating to locate the perpetrators.
