Authorities are investigating the theft of cash and jewellery worth over €12,500 from two Tala homes in Paphos on Saturday as well as that of a bag with €6,000 in cash in Limassol.

Police said that two residents of Tala reported that cash and jewellery worth more than €12,500 was stolen from their homes, in both cases, sometime between Saturday afternoon and 11 pm.

A man reported that someone broke into his house and stole €6,000 in cash and jewellery worth around €2,500. It is believed that perpetrators broke into the house through a sliding window.

The second break in concerns the house of a woman, from where €260 in cash was reported stolen as well as jewellery worth around €4,000.

Police said that perpetrators entered the house from the living room through an aluminium sliding door.

Later in the day, a 42-year-old woman who works at a Limassol betting shop reported that someone had snatched a bag she was carrying with the cash takings of the shop, amounting to around €6,000.

The woman reported that, while she was walking home after work holding the bag with the cash, a man she didn’t know pushed her, grabbed the bag and ran away. The incident reportedly took place just before midnight.
