Paphos robbery-conspiracy suspects wanted (pictures)

Police are searching for two men, suspected of stealing €8,140 from a Paphos shop on Friday, authorities said on Saturday.

The suspects are described as being between 50 and 60-years-old, heavily built and between 1.70 and 1.75 metres tall. One of the men has white hair and the other black, police said.

According to the police, the men entered the store in Paphos wanting to exchange 10,000 dollars to €8,140. Then, they allegedly counted the cash and placed it in an envelope, which they handed to the shop’s employee.

The employee took the envelope and gave them the €8,140 and the men left. However, when the employee checked the envelope he saw that it was empty.

Anyone with information is requested to contact Paphos police at 26 606021 or 26 606049, the nearest police station, or the citizen’s help line at 1460.
