A hearse reported as stolen from a funeral home last week along with over €1,000 has been located, Limassol media reported on Tuesday.
In an odd twist to the somewhat unusual theft, the hearse appears to have been accidentally spotted by a funeral home employee while driving, parked on a coastal strip in the district.
Police examined the vehicle and gathered fingerprint evidence and the vehicle was returned to the rightful owner.
So far the incident by unknown perpetrators remains unsolved. The funeral home’s owner reported to police the theft of €1,425, several keys, and the hearse itself which had been valued at €25,000.
No signs of a break-in were found, and it was thought the perpetrators managed to enter through the windows.
Limassol CID continues investigations.
