A stolen phone sale goes wrong in Paphos when man offers to sell to actual owner


A Paphos resident, who was a victim of a burglary last month, was offered to buy two mobile phones which turned out to be the ones stolen from his own residence.

According to police, a local man was in a local store on Tuesday when he was approached by an unknown stranger, a 25-year-old male who was trying to sell two mobile phones.

The prospective buyer recognised the two phones as the ones stolen from his residence and notified police

The prospective buyer, who recognised the two phones as the ones stolen from his residence, notified police who arrested the suspect.

The detained man told investigators he had bought the mobile phones from another individual, a 20-year-old male who is now also wanted by police.

Reports said the victim’s residence was broken into back in December where the two phones and €480 in cash were stolen.
