Three arrests, 25kg of cannabis seized

Two men from Larnaca district and a Romanian woman have been remanded in custody for six days in connection with 25 kilograms of cannabis intercepted at Larnaca airport on Friday evening.

The woman, 23, was arrested on Friday after drug squad officers found 25 kilograms of cannabis in her luggage shortly after her arrival from Athens at around 9.30pm.

Authorities had been acting on a tip off.

The 23-year-old agreed to work with the officers in a sting operation to arrest the recipients of the drugs.

She took the drugs to a house in Xylotymbou where she met two men aged 26 and 36.

Police raided the dwelling and arrested the two suspects who were brought before court on Saturday along with the woman.

Officers also found a shotgun and a number of cartridges.

Police said they were seeking one more individual.
