Police Car 16

Paphos police are looking for a man suspected of securing money under false pretences, they announced on Monday.

A 69-year-old priest from the Paphos district reported to police that a 39-year-old man, who said he was a resident of Limassol and gave his name as Giorgos, approached him and told him his child had medical problems and needed treatment abroad.

The priest said he gave him €350 because he was convinced of the allegations.

Police investigations revealed that the suspect had lied and a warrant for his arrest was issued.

He has in the past been involved in similar cases and is wanted, police said.
