Police on Thursday announced the arrest of two men aged 23 and 26 years old, respectively, as suspects for a string of burglaries targeting shops in the plush suburb of Kifissia over the last five months.
Shortly before their arrest by a team of DIAS motorcycle police, the two young men had broken into hair-dressing salon and taken 176 euro from the till.
Police believe they are also behind more than 10 burglaries targeting clothes and shoe shops, restaurants and hair-dressing salons in which they took money, goods, computers, electronic goods and other items.
The two were led before an Athens first-instance court prosecutor and charged with repeated counts of theft.
