The Famagusta criminal court on Wednesday sentenced a 35-year-old man to five years in jail after finding him guilty of robbing a kiosk in Protaras using a fake gun.

According to a statement released by the police, the robbery took place on October 30, 2023, when the man entered the kiosk to buy cigarettes.

At some point, he took the fake gun out and demanded money from the cashier, who allegedly refused to comply. The man then grabbed the entire cash register and fled.

The perpetrator left the kiosk and got inside a car parked outside the kiosk before escaping.

Police eventually tracked the car down and arrested the man, who, during questioning, admitted to committing the crime.
