Another 21-year-old man was arrested by police in connection with the theft of a large number of cartridges and bullets from a container importing weapons in Limassol. Four people were arrested in the same case, against whom the case has already been registered for trial.
The 21-year-old was arrested yesterday by members of the Limassol TAE, with a court warrant, following information that emerged against him, during the investigation of the case.
