Police on Tuesday arrested a second suspect, aged 21, on suspicion of stealing a €30,000 car in Paphos eight months ago, while a third man is also wanted in connection with the case.

The car, which belongs to a Russian permanent resident of Paphos, was stolen on February 11 this year from the Universal area, Paphos.

After police found the vehicle, evidence from the car linked the 21-year-old man to the case and an arrest warrant was issued against him on July 2.

The suspect was arrested related to offences of vehicle theft but also the theft of €5,000 in cash which was in the car, according to the complainant’s statement.

Meanwhile, on September 15, police arrested a 32-year-old man in connection with the case, who was remanded and then released pending his court appearance.

A third suspect, aged 26, is also wanted in relation to the car theft, police said.
