A 24-year-old was arrested by the police in Limassol on Monday as the prime suspect in the theft of a handbag valued at €500, which contained a cash amount exceeding €2,500, as well as other property valued at around €650.

According to the police, last Friday, a 53-year-old woman reported the theft after she went shopping at a supermarket. She told officers that she left her handbag on a shopping cart when looking for items on a shelf and did not find it when she returned to search for it.

In the days following the incident, police obtained evidence against a 24-year-old after examining the supermarket’s closed-circuit television system.

An arrest warrant was issued against him. He was located and arrested on Monday. The handbag was also found in his possession.

The suspect is expected to appear before the Limassol district court on Tuesday for the issuance of a detention order.
