Man remanded for suspected burglary and arson at Kornos betting shop (Updated)

A 31-year-old man has been remanded for six days on suspicion of burglary and arson at a building in Kornos.

According to police, it was reported shortly before 2am Monday that there was a fire at a betting shop in Kornos. Firefighters extinguished the fire but the inside of the building was badly damaged.

Officers from the Kofinou and Larnaca police stations concluded the fire was set deliberately after noticing marks on the door of the building.

The owner of the betting shop did not have any idea as to who might have been responsible.

The betting shop was not insured and did not have CCTV.

Investigations pointed to a suspect and he was arrested later on Monday. The 31-year-old reportedly admitted to the crime.
