Man arrested for importing cocaine through the post

A 38-year-old Nicosia man has been arrested on suspicion of importing around 1.5 kilograms of cocaine through the post.

Police said the package containing the drug had been spotted at Larnaca airport on September 11. It was forwarded to a post office in the capital for controlled delivery, which led to the suspect’s arrest.

A subsequent search of his home came up with an air pistol, police said.
