The man was arrested after drug squad officers intercepted his car in the area of Hirokitia and found one kilo of cannabis inside.

A subsequent search of a second vehicle belonging to the suspect, in Moutayiaka, Limassol, yielded three kilos of cannabis and 1.5 kilos of cocaine.

Police discovered 29 more kilos of cannabis on a premises belonging to the 30-year-old in the Moutayiaka farming estate.
