Paphos police arrested three men on Tuesday night in connection with a burglary ring.
The three men, aged 25, 30 and 34 and already known to the police, were found to be in possession of a large number of car keys, burglary tools, binoculars and bank notes in different currencies, for which they could not give an acceptable explanation.
Police officers had stopped the rental car with the three men inside at 10.15 pm on Tuesday night.
All three were arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to commit an offence, illegal possession of burglary tools, resisting arrest and assaulting a police officer.
Further investigations to clarify the case are currently underway.
