Man detained in Larnaca for child exploitation material

Police arrest suspect in cybercrime case


In a recent operation, Larnaca police apprehended a 36-year-old man under suspicion of possessing child sexual abuse material. The arrest followed a tip received by the Cybercrime Sub-Division, alerting them to the online activities of a user in Cyprus.

The subsequent search at the suspect's residence yielded incriminating evidence on his computer, leading to his prompt arrest.

The investigation, initiated by the Cybercrime Sub-Division, uncovered files containing disturbing material during the early morning raid.

The Electronic Crime Sub-Division seized not only the suspect's computer but also a mobile phone and an external hard drive for further examination.

The 36-year-old now faces an eight-day detention, as approved by the Larnaca District Court, to facilitate a thorough investigation into the case.

This arrest underscores the crucial role of community vigilance and law enforcement efforts in tackling online exploitation.

As the case unfolds, we will continue to provide updates on the developments in this disturbing yet vital investigation.
