Police in Limassol on Monday arrested two people for driving a stolen vehicle.

According to police statement, at 8.15pm in Kato Polemidia, police stopped a vehicle for inspection, during which they found the car was being driven with a nail clipper in the ignition, rather than a key.

During the ensuing background check, the car’s registration number was found to be different from the chassis and body numbers, and police identified the vehicle as one reported stolen in January.

The two occupants of the car, a 33-year-old driver with a 29-year-old co-driver, both residents of Limassol, were arrested and taken into custody while police continue investigations.
