The 41-year-old man who was arrested four days ago in connection with a theft from a Paphos souvenir shop may be involved in eight cases of burglary and theft, police said on Monday.

According to the announcement, he is suspected to have carried out a burglary at a pub, from where he took alcoholic beverages, and at a furniture shop in Geroskipou, where he allegedly stole €350.

Police are investigating another five cases of theft in which he may have been involved.

The suspect was arrested two hours after the burglary from the souvenir shop on Thursday.
