A 29 year old non-Cypriot is under arrest after he was stopped by police moving suspiciously near an Ayia Napa Hotel and could not give adequate explanation for items found in his possession.
Police stopped the man at around 11.50 pm. He was found to have various coins, gloves, a torch and a mobile phone. On being informed that he was being arrested for illegal possession of property and possession of burglary tools, he shoved the police officer and tried to flee but was pursued and stopped.
His home was searched where police found three electrical and electronic appliances and 390 pound sterling.
Police are continuing their investigations.
