A 23-YEAR-OLD MAN, wanted by police for questioning in connection with a drug-related death, turned himself in to authorities on Thursday evening.

Loukas Xenofontos, 23, turned himself in at Limassol police HQ. He reportedly denies any involvement in the case.

Xenofontos was expected to appear before a judge on Friday where police would request that he be remanded in custody.

Police had issued a warrant for his arrest, in connection with the death of 35-year-old Christos Tsialoupis in Limassol on Sunday.

According to the police, Tsialoupis died shortly after consuming methamphetamine after meeting with a 28-year-old, who has been arrested.

The 28-year-old is believed to be Tsialoupis’ supplier.

Police had reason to believe that Xenofontos was accompanying the 28-year-old prime suspect during the alleged exchange that took place in the village of Trachoni.
