A 28-year-old man has been remanded in custody for four days following his arrest for allegedly cheating two people out of €39,700, paid for the supposed import of vehicles from overseas.

The suspect is thought to have taken the money for the import of three vehicles from the UK.

An arrest warrant was issued against him for theft between January and July 2021.

The vehicles never turned up, for which the suspect gave some excuses and promised to return the money with two post dated cheques.

The first cheque was presented at a bank when it was realised it referred to a frozen bank account.

On Sunday morning the suspect appeared before Limassol district court, which ordered his remand.
