Paphos police on Friday made two arrests to facilitate investigations on cases of burglary and theft in the district.

The suspects are a 24-year-old mand and a 33-year-old woman, both of whom were taken into custody.

On April 15, a resident of a Paphos village reported that unknown persons broke into his property, which is located in a fenced area.

The perpetrators stole from the property an electronic device, as well as a car, owned by the complainant’s wife, which was parked inside the fenced area.

Paphos CID located the stolen car on Thursday in a street in Paphos, and apprehended the 24-year-old, finding he also had the keys with him.

He was arrested after not providing a satisfactory explanation as to how the vehicle came into his possession.

The man appeared before the district court on Friday, which ordered he be remanded in custody for six days.

A testimony was also obtained against the 33-year-old woman, who was arrested and taken into custody to facilitate investigations.
