Coin con foiled in Larnaca (updated)

A 26-year-old, arrested on suspicion of theft was on Tuesday remanded for five days by the Larnaca District Court.

The alertness of a Larnaca antique dealer led to the arrest of the suspect when on Monday afternoon he entered the dealer’s shop and offered a number of collector coins for sale.

This struck the owner as suspicious and he called the police.

Police officers found that the coins had been stolen and arrested the man on suspicion of theft.

On April 15, police had received a complaint that coins worth €9,000 had been stolen from a man’s car.

It is believed that these are the ones found in the suspect’s possession.
