Two women, who picked up a dropped wallet containing a large sum of cash at a supermarket in Paphos have been identified.

According to police spokesman Michalis Nikolaou, on Saturday the 55-year-old businessman who lost his wallet reported the loss to the police, saying it contained €2,350 as well as various documents.

After reviewing CCTV footage, it became apparent that the wallet, which was dropped at the exit, was picked up minutes later by two unknown women who made no effort to locate the owner.

Photos of the two women were made public and around 11 pm one of the two women, aged 57, presented herself to the police.

The 57-year-old admitted that she had found the wallet, along with her 35-year-old daughter.

The two were accused in writing of theft, as they allegedly took no immediate actions to locate the owner as required by law.
