Police in Limassol arrested two people on Thursday night after carrying out random checks on bars, clubs and vehicles, forcing 11 minors to leave a bar.

The checks began at 10pm on Thursday and ended at 5am on Friday, police said.

During a search at a bar on Makarios Avenue in the coastal town, police found 11 minors at the venue. They took the underage teenagers to Ayios Ioannis police station where they were picked-up by their parents. It is illegal for anyone under the age of 16 to enter a bar or club, police said.

Police also arrested the 30-year-old bar owner after determining he did not have an alcohol or music licence. He was later released and will appear in court at a later date.

Following checks on 25 vehicles, police arrested one woman after finding the vehicle she was driving did not have insurance or road tax. The woman was later released and ordered to appear in court at a later date.

Around 20 other bars and clubs were also checked but were found to fulfill all the necessary criteria. A number of parks in the town were checked but no illegal activity was reported, police said.
