Remanded for cocaine possession

A 43-year-old man who was arrested in Limassol on Friday afternoon after police had to fire warning shots when he tried to flee, was remanded for six days on Saturday after 350 grams of cocaine and €1,000 in cash were found on his person.

Acting on a tip-off, the drug squad placed the 43-year-old’s car under surveillance on Friday and when he was called to stop for a police inspection in the Linopetra, Limassol, area, he tried to speed away, hitting two police cars in the process.

Following warning shots and shots at his car tyres, police were able to arrest the driver.

In the ensuing search, 350 grams of cocaine and €1,000 in cash were found.  The suspect, who was known to the drug squad, was taken to the Limassol police headquarters to be questioned.
