Robbers smashed through wall to enter Paphos jewellery shop

Criminals in Paphos broke through the walls of an empty shop to reach the jewellery shop next door.

According to the police, the burglars got away with a number of pieces of silver jewellery of unknown value, but were not able to reach the gold pieces kept in a safe at the Chlorakas shop.

The jewellery shop’s alarm went off at 4am on Tuesday, alerting the owner and the police.
