Mail-order cannabis duo arrested

Two individuals were remanded for five days in connection with cannabis found during routine checks on incoming mail parcels at Larnaca airport, the customs department said in a statement Saturday.

According to a statement, a customs official on Friday identified a parcel, addressed to a woman, containing 180 grams of cannabis.

In cooperation with the drug squad, the parcel was delivered on the same day under surveillance, and the woman, a Larnaca resident, as well as a man, were arrested.

The two gave explanations which are being investigated by police.

This case, the statement said, is “yet another example of the flawless cooperation between the customs department and police, which led to a successful resolution of the case, currently under police investigation”.

The two, 27 and 23, were remanded for five days by the Larnaca district court.
