A 36 year old is under arrest on suspicion of stealing 300 kilos of avocados with an estimated value of €500 from a field in Nikoklea, Paphos.

The man was arrested after the 54 year old owner of the field said that the avocados were missing from the trees.

He said that he had seen the man, a Bulgarian permanent resident of Cyprus, collecting avocados from his field at a previous date but had not reported him to the police at the time.

But on discovering that more of his crop was missing, he reported the issue to the police.
