Man arrested for possession of counterfeit Viagra

Viagra is so far the only erectile dysfunction medicine to be reclassified from “prescription only medicine” to “pharmacy” status in Britain

A 62-old-year taxi driver was arrested on Thursday after police officers found 348 counterfeit male erectile dysfunction pills in his home in Limassol, police said.

The taxi driver told police officers that the pills were for his personal use and that he had no intention of selling them.

Police officers questioned the 62-year-old after being tipped-off.

According to Limassol police spokesman Ioannis Soteriades, the pills are believed to be counterfeit Viagra.

The 62-year-old told police he imported the pills from Syria.

Police investigators believe that the fake pills were brought over from the north.

“The pills were handed over at the pharmaceuticals services for testing. We are trying to determine whether they contain unauthorised substances that endanger public safety,” said Soteriades.

The 62-year-old, who was a known figure to the authorities according to the report, was charged and later released to be called at a later date.
