The Police arrested a 38-year-old man in the early hours of the morning, to facilitate investigations regarding an investigated case of car theft and illegal possession of property.

Specifically, a few minutes after midnight, members of the Larnaca Police Department, who were on motorized patrol, spotted a saloon car with fake registration numbers in a hotel parking lot in Larnaca. In close proximity to the said vehicle, a semi-truck was found parked, which had been reported to the Police as stolen on January 9, 2024.

From police examinations, it was found that the saloon vehicle was used by a 38-year-old, who lives in the particular hotel.

Members of the Police identified the 38-year-old inside the hotel. During an investigation, a travel bag was found in his possession, which contained various church utensils. The 38-year-old did not give satisfactory explanations as to how the objects in question were found in his possession, as a result of which he was arrested for the spontaneous offense of illegal possession of property.

A search of the saloon vehicle ensued, during which a short-barreled shotgun was located, which had been reported to the Police as stolen on December 23, 2023. Various tools and the keys to the stolen semi-truck were also located.

The 38-year-old was taken into custody to facilitate investigations, while today he is expected to be brought before the Larnaca District Court, for the issuance of a detention order.

TAE Larnaca is investigating the case.
