Suspected conmen arrested

Limassol police on Wednesday arrested three suspected conmen after they were identified by a member of the public.

The men, two 42-year-olds and a 64-year-old, were wanted by police in connection with two scam they pulled in Nicosia and Paphos netting them thousands of euros.

The suspects were spotted at 9.20am in a kiosk in Limassol, which doubles as a money transfer bureau. They claimed they wanted to send €3,000 overseas but were picked up by police after they were notified by a member of the public who had seen the photos published by police a few days ago.

In their possession, officers found €9,240, $10,709, and £200.

The authorities had been seeking the suspects following complaints in Paphos and Nicosia.
