A sum of money found by police in the possession of a 31-year-old man stopped for traffic violations was identified as being stolen on January 16 from the vehicle of a 67-year-old woman.

According to the police, the woman had a sum of €10,000 and 185 Turkish lira in the glove compartment of her vehicle, which was parked outside her home in Paphos.

Police stopped the 31-year-old shortly after midnight on Saturday on Akamantidos Street for driving with a suspended license and without insurance or MOT. The driver tested positive in a preliminary drug test.

In the subsequent search the money was found in his possession, for which he had no adequate explanation. The 31-year-old was arrested and detained for two days.

Following the outcome of the investigation, the man was re-arrested on Monday under a court warrant for the theft of the money in question.
