Police arrest burglary suspect

A 35-year-old man is in custody in Paphos in connection with possession of burglary tools, breaking into a shop with intent to steal, and use of drugs.

According to police, the man allegedly broke into a shop through the front door around midnight on Monday.

Upon arrival at the scene, police officers questioned the 35-year-old, who is a permanent resident of Cyprus, but he could not provide convincing explanation of why he was in the shop and was therefore arrested.

Moreover, officers found 0.26 grams of cannabis on the suspect, as well as gloves and various burglary tools.
