Suspected avocado thief nabbed

Police on Monday arrested a man in connection with the theft of 300 kilos of avocados worth €500 in Nikokleia in the Paphos district.

The 54-year-old owner of the land from where the avocados were stolen told police he had previously caught the suspect collecting some of the large fruits but had not reported him.

He suspected the 36-year-old man, a resident of the area, of the theft when he found that a large amount of avocados were missing from his trees on Monday.

The suspect was arrested to facilitate further investigations.
