Police have arrested two men in Moutallos, Paphos, in connection with the illegal possession of drugs, dangerous driving and other offences.
When officers tried to stop a car for a routine check Monday afternoon the driver tried to flee, picking up speed and at some point hitting the wall of a house.
This didn’t stop him and he reversed but he then lost control of the vehicle, crashed into an electricity pole and came to a final halt.
The passenger, a 21-year-old resident of Paphos, tried to escape on foot and threw away a precision scale, a nylon sachet containing 24 grammes of cannabis and another sachet with 22 grammes of a white powder believed to be cocaine before his arrest.
The driver, 27, who was arrested in the car tested positive for drugs during a narcotest.
Both were detained to facilitate further investigations.
