Limassol CID has arrested a 47-year-old man suspected of breaking into a meat warehouse and stealing goods worth more than 50,000 euros between 2022 and 2023 in Limassol.

According to a meat trader's complaint, he discovered deficiencies in boxes of frozen meat in a cold storage warehouse he rented in Limassol beginning in early 2022, prompting him to install detection devices in early 2023.

The complainant discovered a number of boxes on the Limassol-Nicosia interurban road yesterday and immediately contacted the police.

A patrol from the traffic police headquarters stopped a vehicle driven by a 47-year-old former complainant employee, and a search revealed ten boxes of frozen meat worth 520 euros.

The recovered goods were identified by the complainant, and the suspect was apprehended and taken into custody under a court warrant.

Interrogated, he allegedly confessed to the theft of the meat found in his possession, while Limassol CID is investigating possible involvement in the alleged theft of a quantity of goods worth more than 50,000 euros.
