Two arrests for a string of Paphos robberies

Paphos police arrested two people – aged 35 and 26 – in connection to a number of thefts.

In the first case, a 35-year-old woman was arrested in connection to a house robbery.

According to evidence being investigated, a laptop computer, mobile phone and various electronic devices worth a total of €5,450 and €500 in cash were stolen in the robbery carried out between March 14 and 15, 2022.

The owner of the property went to the police with his suspicions against the woman, who was detained by police following a court order for her arrest.

Meanwhile, in a separate incident, a 26-year-old woman was arrested in connection to the theft of a car in Paphos in April.

According to the police statement, the owner of the car heard a noise at around 3.30 in the morning of April 22, outside his home in Peyia.

On further investigation, he found someone driving his car, which subsequently crashed into a wall next to his house.

Police discovered a screw driver and a mobile phone that did not belong to the car’s owner during an examination inside the vehicle.

Further examinations revealed evidence against the 26-year-old, who was arrested shortly after 11.00am.

The 26-year-old woman was arrested again shortly after 12.00 noon, in connection to separate cases of theft from a kiosk and from a parked car.

According to the evidence under investigation, shortly after one o’clock on Friday morning, two women entered a kiosk in Chlorakas from which one of the two suspects stole products such as headphones and electronic data storage cables, worth a total value of over €100.

The same woman then allegedly stole a bag containing the amount of €480 from the parked but unlocked car belonging to the kiosk employee.

Peyia Police Station and the Paphos Petty Crimes Unit are investigating the case.
