Remand for fifth suspect arrested in connection with Paphos burglaries (Updated)

Paphos district court remanded a 27-year-old man for five days on Saturday in connection with burglaries in five different shops in the district last month.

Officers found the wanted man, at a relative’s house on Friday night. The suspect, in his attempt to escape from the police, jumped on the roof of a neighbouring house.

Police fired four warning shots before they caught up with the man and arrested him.

He was the fifth suspect related to thefts that took place between March 28 and April 16 while the restrictive measures against the spreading of the new coronavirus were implemented.

For the same case, four other Paphos residents aged 19, 31, 22 and 21 were also arrested in the previous days.

They are facing charges of conspiracy to commit a crime, burglary and theft, and possession of burglary tools.
