Two people, 25 and 37, were arrested as part of investigations into two separate theft cases in Paphos and Polis Chrysochous, police said on Wednesday.

A 37-year-old man, who went to the shop again on Tuesday, was arrested after the shop owner recognised him as one of the two suspects from the previous day, a Paphos police spokesman said.

Meanwhile, another shop owner in Polis Chrysochous reported that she saw a 25-year-old man who lives in the area standing near the backdoor of her business on Tuesday, before she realised that some items were missing.

After the suspect was arrested, police carried out a search inhis house without finding anything suspicious.
