Police early on Thursday arrested two men, 19 and 33, in connection with 19 cases of burglary and theft in Nicosia.

The cases were reported to the police between November 8 to 27 this year.

During investigations, evidence emerged against the two suspects.

Officers arrested the teenager about 40 minutes after midnight while he was driving in Nicosia.

Less than an hour later, around 1.25am, police also arrested the 33-year-old man at his house in Nicosia. Police said they confiscated some evidence following a search in his house.

The two are expected to face Nicosia district court later on Thursday to be remanded.
