A 35-year-old man was remanded in custody for two days on Thursday after he allegedly tried to sell card reading machines online.
The case was reported to police by card processing company JCC. Police said the suspect posted online in May that he was selling JCC point of sales (POS) terminals.
Investigators were led to the 35-year-old from Paphos who was found in possession of two JCC POS terminals, police said.
The man was arrested in connection with illegal possession of property, as he claimed that he had bought the machines from an unknown individual around a year ago.
Police were trying through JCC to track the origin of the terminals.
