Two men aged 23 were remanded for six days by the Limassol District Court on Saturday in connection with a burglary of a Limassol house and the theft of an army G3 rifle, which occurred between August 21 and 23.

On Friday morning a search of a car driven by one of them by police revealed a shoulder bag with burglary tools inside, a laptop, three broken mobile phones, foreign currency and a collection of keys.

The 23-year-old did not give a reasonable explanation over where the items had come from and was arrested.

Further investigation showed he seemed to be involved in the theft of an army gun, while a search of his house turned up the second 23-year-old who also appears to be involved in the theft.

For the same case four other people are already under remand, aged 32, 34, 20 and 18.
