Two suspects nabbed in drugs bust

Two Limassol men aged 36 and 37 were remanded in custody for eight days on Wednesday in connection with possession of more than kilo of cannabis and around 150 grammes of cocaine.

Police found the drugs on Monday at a specific location at the village of Pyrgos following a tip-off.

Drug squad officers went to the area and found 1,170 grammes cannabis hidden in the shrubbery.

The drugs were seized while police kept a discreet eye on the area.

The pair were arrested on Tuesday when they visited the area in a car to pick up the drugs, police said.

Officers intercepted the car and found two packages that contained a white powder weighing 30 grammes believed to be cocaine, a metal grinder, traces of cannabis and two precision scales with traces of drugs on it, police said.

Following another search in the area police also found a package which had around 125 grammes of what is believed to be cocaine.
