Drug arrests in Paphos

Police fired shots at the tyres of a car carrying two Paphos men who were later arrested for possession of drugs and other offences.

The car was seen moving suspiciously on the Choletria road at around 6pm on Friday. Officers instructed the driver to pull over but he accelerated in a bid to escape.

Police said the driver tried to ram the officers’ vehicle repeatedly, prompting them to fire shots at its tyres in an effort to immobilise it.

The two passengers of the car refused to get out, police said.

A subsequent search found two grammes of cannabis. The pair were arrested for possession, obstructing police, and traffic violations.
