Paphos airport

Paphos police on Wednesday arrested a 43-year-old woman in connection with the theft of €10,000, after reporting on Monday they were looking for her.

A travel agent from Egypt who travelled to Cyprus with a group of 30 Egyptians reported to police on Monday that the group went to a hotel in Limassol after their arrival at Paphos airport.

One of them noticed that a bag containing €10,000 was missing. It was believed to have been stolen at the airport.

Evidence pointed to the involvement of the 43-year-old woman, a member of the group. A warrant was issued against her.

When she was questioned the suspect denied any involvement in the case.

Officers found some €3,000 in her possession, of which €2,000 had been declared at customs by her and her husband upon arrival in Cyprus.
