Another burglary took place with thieves managing to get away with luxury clothing and expensive handbags, this time in the capital with loot worth over 100 grand.
According to police sources, thieves targeted a high-end clothing store on Wednesday night, on Stasikratous street in Nicosia, managing to get away with expensive articles of clothing and accessories worth over €100,000.
The store employee who went to open the shop on Thursday morning, according to police, realised there was a break in and immediately called the cops.
The burglary appears to follow a pattern similar to incidents in Limassol in previous months
Investigators who rushed to the scene collected pieces of evidence for forensic tests while experts are also taking a look at CCTV security footage.
The burglary appears to follow a pattern similar to incidents in Limassol in previous months, however no information was made available whether the cases are connected.
Back in November, burglars targeted an exclusive clothing store in Limassol, on a coastal road in the southern town. A similar burglary took place in Yermasoyia a week later, where stolen fur was later estimated at about €300,000.
And in late October, a burglary took place when one of the suspects appeared at the storefront of a luxury fur coat outlet, in front of a security camera.
The total value of stolen goods in previous burglaries were estimated to be over half a million.
