Cannabis arrest

A 37-year-old man from Greece was arrested after police found almost 15kg of cannabis in his luggage at around 10.30pm on Monday at Larnaca airport.

Acting on information that drugs were being imported into Cyprus, members of the drug squad cooperated with airport police to conduct searches on passengers’ luggage.

They allegedly found 14 kilos and 677 grams of cannabis in 12 nylon bags in the luggage of the 37-year-old of Russian origin who arrived at Larnaca from Athens.

The 37-year-old is due to be taken to Larnaca District Court today for a remand hearing.
