One suspect on remand for Limassol shop robberies

A man has been remanded for seven days in connection with the burglaries of fur coats from two shops on October 25 and November 16 at Limassol’s coastal road.

According to police, the 25-year-old was identified on CCTV footage from one of the two shops.

The suspect, who appeared in court on Friday, denies any involvement in the thefts.  He was arrested on Thursday evening.

On October 25, perpetrators broke the glass entrance of a shop at the beachfront and removed 24 items valued at €200,000 in total.

Fur coats worth €300,000 were stolen from a shop at the same road on November 16. The burglars used the same way to gain entrance, by breaking the main entrance.

A similar burglary occurred early last Wednesday when two hooded men broke the entrance to a clothing and footwear shop and escaped with a number of expensive bags and shoes.

Police said they do not exclude that the three robberies are linked to the same perpetrators as the modus operandi was similar.
