Cannabis plants found at Limassol workshop

A cannabis nursery was discovered police Tuesday night in a carpentry workshop in Limassol.

The premises is believed to be connected to the earlier arrest of five men in on suspicion of possessing 30kg of cannabis.

The five suspects were arrested when the 30kg of cannabis was seized at Limassol port inside three boilers imported from Greece.

The truck carrying the drugs was intercepted by drug squad officers after it unloaded the container at Limassol.

Police arrested the importer, a 42-year-old Greek national and four others suspected of being involved. Two of the suspects are also Greek, aged 33 and 43. The other two are Cypriots, 39 and 41.

The suspects are due in court on Wednesday. More arrests have not been ruled out.

After further investigations on Tuesday, police located the carpentry workshop in Ayia Fyla, and found plastic flower pots with soil and freshly cut cannabis.

Lamps and ventilation systems were also found.
