The two men suspected of robbing a jewelry shop in Girne on Thursday morning and then fled the country via the Ercan airport in Lefkosa were identified as Iranians.

According to police report, the two men were identified as J.B, 47 and M.N, 23. They reportedly fled the country on Friday afternoon.

Following the large scale robbery at the Girne jewelry shop, the robbers moved to Famagusta where they buried most of the stolen items on the sea shore in the northern part of Famagusta.

The items including gold jewelries, diamond and money were exhibited to the press at the Famagusta Police Department on Friday.

Meanwhile, the owner of the shop has expressed shock as to why and how come the thieves were able to escape the country despite the fact that their photos were heavily circulated everywhere. 

He decried the level of security in the country and called on authorities to do something about it.

The robbers took a taxi from Famagusta and went to Ercan. The taxi driver, who took the robbers to Ercan, told the police that the suspects had herbs on them.

According to airport camera records, the suspects didn't have the bag with them and departed the country at about 3:20pm on Friday.
