Limassolans are having to contend with car park thieves who puncture their tyres and steal their valuables when they are busy changing them, Philenews reported on Friday.
It said that there have been 10 incidents in recent days where members of the public have returned to their car only to find it has a flat tyre.
As they change the tyre, valuables left in the car are stolen.
The incidents have occurred at the parking of My Mall and Hellenic Bank on Makarios avenue, it said.
A 30 year old man from Georgia is under arrest in connection with such thefts.
