A 60-year-old Greek man was remanded in custody for six days on Saturday on suspicion of smuggling 25 kilos of cannabis into Cyprus.
The man arrived from Athens on Friday afternoon but his behaviour while retrieving his luggage at Larnaca airport made police officers suspicious.
“His luggage was checked by customs officers who found over 25 kilograms of cannabis,” drug squad spokesman Stelios Sergides said.
The suspect told police he did not know the recipient of the drugs and that his instructions were to expect a phone call.
Sergides said the 60-year-old refused to give up the suppliers of the drugs in Athens.
