Police are on the hunt for a 19-year-old man after he managed to get away from officers who later found around five kilos of cannabis in his car on British bases territory in Limassol.

Drug squad members on Tuesday night tried to flag down the man while he was driving in Limassol. However he sped off and drove towards the bases area in Akrotiri.

At some point, the 19-year-old crashed into a fence and taking advantage of the dark, ran away on foot and disappeared.

Officers found some five kilos of cannabis in his vehicle.

Bases police are investigating the case.

The suspect has had previous run ins with the law.
