Paphos pair plead not guilty in backpack theft

Paphos court

TWO men aged 52 and 37 pleaded not guilty in Paphos district court on Thursday, denying involvement in the alleged theft of €4,000 from a backpack in a parked car in June.

The court scheduled the trial to begin on May 8, and released the two on parole until the hearing.

The suspects put up a €5,000 guarantee each and handed in their travel documents, while their names were placed on the stop list. They will both be required to appear at a police station once a week.

Police investigators found evidence pointing to the 37-year-old, who was arrested on July 21, after which further evidence was found linking the 52-year-old to the case, who was also arrested.
