CORFU. The thieves managed to steal 50 litres of petrol from one car.

Two men, aged 32 and 17, were arrested yesterday afternoon, 8 April, when they were caught in the act of theft and attempted complicity in the same crime and subsequent offences.

According to the police investigation, the two perpetrators, in the early hours of Sunday 7 April, initially broke into two parked vehicles in a suburb of Corfu Town. They then attempted to start them up, unsuccessfully, and siphoned about 50 litres of petrol from one of them.
