Police in Ayia Napa confiscated 24 grammes of cocaine and arrested a Bulgarian bar owner, 38, and his Moroccan girlfriend, 23, following a raid at the man’s bar and flat on Tuesday night.
Members of the Famagusta drug squad were tipped off and around 8.30pm on Tuesday visited the 38-year-old’s flat in Paralimni.
According to reports, after realising officers intended to search his flat, the Bulgarian man refused them entry.
The door was eventually broken down by police who searched the flat and found 12 grammes of cocaine and a precision scale on the kitchen table.
A search was later carried out at the man’s bar where another 12 grammes of cocaine were found as well as a small amount of a drug called Crystal Ice, police said.
According to the police, the pair denied involvement and were not co-operating.
They will be taken to Famagusta District Court later on Wednesday for a remand hearing.


Police in Larnaca arrested a 30-year-old man in connection with a fire which destroyed a bar during the early hours of Tuesday. A 16-year-old male is being held for the same offence.
According to police, the 30-year-old was found injured at around 9.15pm on Tuesday near the Hala Sultan mosque in Larnaca.
He was picked up by an ambulance which took him to Larnaca general hospital. He claimed at the time he had been involved in an accident near the salt lake and his car had flipped over, police said.
Following examinations, police were led to suspect the man had been involved in starting the fire at the bar earlier that day and arrested him.
