Second car chase suspect arrested

Police on Thursday afternoon arrested a second person in connection with a car chase in Nicosia on Monday.

On Monday night members of the drug squad fired shots in a bid to stop a car with two passengers suspected of carrying drugs on Tseri Avenue in Nicosia.

They had tried to stop the vehicle for inspection at around 8.30pm but its driver accelerated and tried to escape.

A 25-year-old man was arrested at the time and a quantity of drugs, believed to be cannabis, was found in the car.

The second person, 26, who managed to escape during the chase, was arrested on Thursday.
