Paphos police arrested two men, aged 37 and 32, on suspicion of possession of stolen goods early on Thursday.

Officers put an apartment building under surveillance following a tip off that a 37-year-old man was keeping stolen property in a storage room at the ground floor, Paphos CID chief Michalis Nicolaou told CNA.

A few minutes later, they saw the man exiting the storage room and carried out a body search during which they found a small quantity of cannabis and a sharp knife.

The suspect was initially arrested for illegal drug possession and carrying a knife, Nicolaou said.

He added that the keys to the storage space were also found in his possession and a search was conducted there with his consent.

Inside, police found a 32-year-old man as well as property which is believed to have been stolen.

Both suspects were taken into custody.
