Police arrested a 31-year-old woman in Paphos on Thursday on suspicion of purchasing goods on six different occasions with a credit card that did not belong to her.

The complaint was filed by the 24-year-old owner of the card.

Paphos police are investigating the case as a conspiracy to commit a felony, misappropriation of property and theft.

The woman had been identified by closed-circuit surveillance cameras buying merchandise with a credit card that was not her own, police said.
