Five remanded in cannabis seizure

Five people were remanded for eight days on Monday in connection with the possession of 217 grammes of cannabis in Paphos on Sunday.

Police were about to conduct a search of the house of a 27-year-old woman in Paphos but she refused to open the door and was seen running up the stairs inside the house, the Cyprus News Agency reported.

After officers managed to enter the home they found the woman in the bathroom upstairs allegedly trying to throw 12 grammes of cannabis into the toilet. The drugs were seized by police who also found another 205 grammes of cannabis and precision scales elsewhere in the house, which were also taken as evidence.

The woman, and another four people who were in the living room at the time, were arrested to facilitate investigations.
