Mobile phone shop thieves caught

The Fellahoglu mobile phone shop in Nicosia was burgled twice recently.

On March 19th and again on April 1st the front door of the shop was broken and many mobile phones and tablet computers stolen. Both of these incidents took place in the early hours of the morning.

Nicosia police quickly launched an investigation and last week arrested Avni Kansaran who has since confessed to the crime.

Kansaran also implicated two other men, Yusuf Ozur and Ali Kasimoglu, and these two have now also been arrested. Ozur has already confessed to his part in the burglaries.

It appears that Kasimoglu was attempting to sell some of the mobile phones obtained in the burglary.
