A guard spotted the 44-year-old who was using a metal detector at the site of Falassarna, an ancient harbour town on the island’s northwest coast, and alerted the police who arrested the suspect.

In his bag, officials found eight ancient coins and several objects. Police confiscated the device as well as two pickaxes.

The suspect will appear before a prosecutor.
