Two men were detained by Police in Paphos on Friday evening after drugs and ancient vessels were found at the home of one of the suspects.

Armed with a warrant, drug squad officers searched the home of a 38-year-old suspected drug trafficker on Friday evening.

In the course of the investigation, officers found a cannabis joint in his possession, as well as a piece of straw containing 0.3 grammes of methamphetamine.

On the suspect, police also found a small torch, which contained 10 pieces of straw with 1.5 grammes of meth inside.

Two grammes of cannabis and a precision scale were also found while officers discovered a hiding place in the ceiling, which contained eight clay vessels and a large number of clay pieces believed to be ancient artefacts.

Hiding in one of the rooms, police found a 29-year-old man who was also arrested.

Officers also spotted a large motorcycle without registration plates in the backyard whose ownership the 38-year-old could not immediately prove.

The 29-year-old was released later in the day pending forensic tests but was re-arrested in connection with outstanding fines, police said.
