Paphos: Two arrests for theft, Emba house burgled

Paphos police have made two arrests  — of a civil servant and a foreign national –  as part of inquiries into two separate cases of theft and are also investigating the burglary of a Briton’s home in Emba, philenews reports.

It said that a 35 year old employee was arrested on Tuesday evening on suspicion of stealing state property. It follows the discovery of fishing nets and spearguns at his premises at Geroskipou which had recently been stolen from a state warehouse at Koloni. The items have an estimated value of 3000 euro and the suspect told police he had acquired them from someone else.

Meanwhile a 29 year old woman, a Romanian national, was arrested on suspicion of stealing alcohol from three different kiosks. She was reportedly spotted trying to steal alcohol from another kiosk yesterday by the owners who alerted police.

In a third case in the Paphos district a British woman, permanent resident of Emba, reported to police that burglars had stolen electrical goods and clothes from her home and driven off with her car.
