Burglary investigations at advanced stage in Paphos


Investigations into a case of burglary at three different shops in Paphos are at an advanced stage after the arrest of a 29-year-old suspect, according to Paphos police spokesman Michalis Ioannou.

He said they are currently on the lookout for an accomplice of the 29-year-old, who is accused of stealing several items worth around €20,000 from a jewellery shop, a carpentry store and a souvenir shop.

Speaking to the Cyprus News Agency on Monday, Ioannou urged anyone who might have more information or suspicions regarding the burglaries to contact the police immediately.

The suspect was arrested on January 14 following a tip-off from a Paphos resident. He was found in possession of several stolen items, which were later identified as coming from burglaries carried out at the three shops in the centre of Paphos.

Under questioning, the suspect admitted stealing the items from the jewellery shop on January 12 and from the souvenir shop the following day.

Furthermore, he was also found to be in possession of other items reported missing from a carpentry store, worth €4,000.

The Paphos district court issued an eight-day remand for illegal possession of property and possession of burglary tools.
