Two men arrested for burglaries, theft


Two men, aged 21 and 49, have been arrested on suspicion of theft after officers allegedly found stolen property in their Nicosia house, police said on Thursday.

The thefts were carried out in the capital between April and July.

The first case was reported to the police on April 5 by an employee at a laboratory, saying that between April 1 and 4, unknown culprits stole 14 new printers from the underground parking space of the lab.

About three months later, on July 11, a contracting company employee reported that between July 9 and the date of the complaint, burglars broke into the office and storage room of the company and stole various electric tools, a computer and other items.

Police said that during investigations into the two cases, they received a tip-off suggesting that the stolen property was stored in a specific house.

On Wednesday afternoon, officers carried out a search of the house where the two suspects have been staying. They found seven packaged printers, a large number of constructing and surveying equipment, three computers and an airgun.

Both suspects are expected to be brought before the Nicosia district court to be remanded later in the day.
