Remand for man who admitted to 11 burglaries (updated)

A 30-year-old man arrested in connection with a number of burglaries in Nicosia and Larnaca was remanded for eight days by the Larnaca district court on Friday morning.

He is one of two suspects arrested on Thursday afternoon after they were found with jewellery that was not theirs.

The two men, aged 30 and 33, were trying to sell jewellery at a cash for gold shop in Larnaca.

They were spotted by police officers from Nicosia who were in the area to investigate a theft of jewellery in Nicosia.

When they were asked how they came to be in possession of the items they failed to give an adequate explanation.

The 30-year-old suspect also had three credit cards which had been reported stolen in Nicosia, a knife and some clothes in his possession.

When he was questioned, he allegedly admitted he had carried out a burglary in Nicosia and another ten in Larnaca.
