A 28-year-old man who fled from police custody in February and was recaptured over the weekend was remanded for eight days on Sunday at Paphos district court.

According to Paphos deputy police chief Michalis Ioannou, the man is being investigated for 31 break-ins and thefts in Paphos. Of those, 23 took place before his escape while eight were carried out between his escape up until his arrest on Saturday.

He is believed to have been involved in more thefts, Ioannou added.

The suspect, along with a 33-year-old, escaped his holding cell in Paphos on February 5. Both men had been detained after their arrest in connection with a number of break-ins and thefts carried out across Paphos.

Officers had published images of the two. The 33-year-old is still wanted.
