Police seize items in counterfeit case

 

After a two-day investigation police on Thursday announced they had found passports, mobile phones and other items in the Paphos flat rented by a 36-year-old man who was arrested in Germany earlier in the week.

Police officers seized 10 passports from various countries, 71 mobile phones, a computer, bronze plates, a number of banknotes, seven laptops, some hard drives, a USB, a drone and other items.

According to police, the investigation began on June 26 and was completed on Wednesday.

The two-day search involved members of the Paphos crime detection department and the forensic data lab.

The German authorities asked for the apartment to be checked after they found an electricity bill with the Kato Paphos address in the possession of the man they arrested.

The suspect, who has a Belgian passport, is under investigation in connection with faking credit cards.

He was last in Cyprus in March.

Police carried out the search of the apartment armed with a court order in the presence of the owner and the local community leader.

All the evidence found will be scientifically examined.
