Paphos police have arrested a 45-year-old Greek national on suspicion of cultivating cannabis plants, it was reported on Wednesday.

The man, who works as a cook, was picked up by the drug squad after three plants – the tallest being 30 centimetres — were found at his flat.

The suspect said the plants were for his own use, police said.

On Monday, Nicosia police arrested two 25-year-old men in connection with illegal possession and intent to sell banned substances.

At around 6.25pm, members of the Drug Squad stopped a car with two men inside and conducted a search of the vehicle.

Police said they found 84 grams of cannabis during the car search and an additional 16 grams and a pair of scales during a follow-up search of their homes.

The two men were yesterday being held for questioning.
