Two individuals have been remanded in custody for four days after a short police chase saw them stopped in the early hours of the morning on December 5 in the Curium area with what were believed to be stolen goods in their possession, the British bases said on Wednesday.

The male and female, both aged 23 from Paphos and Limassol respectively, initially failed to stop for the SBA police patrol in the Trachoni area and were pursued until they were eventually apprehended in Curium.

After having their vehicle searched, they were found to be in possession of 38 car keys, a laptop, 10 iPads, 65 smart phones and two balaclavas, the bases said.

Chief Inspector Panicos Panayi, who is heading up the investigation said: “Citizens who have had items stolen like the ones mentioned, are welcome to visit the SBA Police Station for any identification.”

SBA Police officials are now working with Cyprus police to see if the items have been reported stolen.
