Three men were remanded in custody for eight days on Tuesday in connection with trafficking 4.3 kilos of cannabis in Limassol.

Police said they were also seeking a 31-year-old man from Nicosia for the same case.

The three suspects, aged 27 and 24, were detained on Monday after police found a paper bag containing five packages of cannabis weighing 4.3 kilos in the Limassol hospital area.

Drug squad officers put the scene under surveillance and at around 5pm they saw a car approaching, followed by a second one.

Inside the first vehicle was one of the 27-year-old suspects and the 24-year-old, while the third suspect was travelling alone in the second car.

The driver of the second vehicle got out and collected the bag with the drugs, prompting police officers to intervene. The other two tried to flee the scene in their car, which was stopped by police. The driver managed to escape on foot but he surrendered at a police station later in the day.

During the investigation, police determined that the drugs were left at the scene by a 31-year-old man from Nicosia who was now being sought.
