Co-op robbery suspect remanded

One of the main suspects in the robbery of a Co-operative Bank outlet in Limassol last March, Charalambos Kaloyerides, 33, was remanded on Monday for eight days, while police are still searching for the whereabouts of a second suspect.

Kaloyerides, who had been wanted by police in connection with the robbery at the Ayios Athanasios Co-Op in Limassol on March 6 was arrested on Sunday in Larnaca following a tip off.

The suspect was taken to court under heavy security measures. The remand hearing took place behind closed doors for security reasons, police said.

He is suspected of plotting the armed robbery, illegal possession and transfer of a gun plus illegal possession and transfer of explosive substances.

Four women and two men, all of them foreign nationals, who were found in the same apartment as Kaloyerides were also arrested. They were charged with being an accessory after the offence was committed and were released. They are to present in court at a later stage.
