Police find weapons they believe are linked to robberies

Police on Monday found weapons, bullets and other evidence which they believe are related to last year’s armed robbery at a Paphos coop bank and other robberies.

According to a police statement, the items were discovered in open spaces and apartments in Paphos and two people are wanted in connection with the findings.

An automatic G3 rifle, a short-barrelled shotgun and a number of bullets are among the seized objects.

The two suspects have been linked to three flats between Mouttalos and the Tombs of the Kings area in Paphos.

A vehicle used in the bank robbery on October 6, 2017, was found abandoned in a field in Mouttalos later in the day.

Police have been looking for two armed men who stole €30,000 from the bank since.

Both perpetrators wore hoods and were armed with weapons like those found on Monday, one with a short-barrelled shotgun and the other with a G3 rifle.
