Police on Friday arrested a man who detached a copper pipe from a building.

According to an official statement, police received a call at 11:30am from an internet installation employee who had been informed of a power cut in a Paphos apartment building.

The employee arrived at the scene to find the door of the electrical room broken and an unknown man inside. When the company employee tried to stop him, the man ran away leaving behind various items of evidence.

Police investigations identified the suspect as a 34-year-old homeless man, and subsequently arrested him and took him into custody. Items found in his possession were determined to be stolen, and the copper pipe was estimated as being worth €100.
