Police issue fourth warrant for drugs death of teenager

Police have issued an arrest warrant for a fourth suspect in connection with the death of an 18-year-old in Limassol after taking drugs.

Though details were not immediately known, the man is believed to have rented out the cafeteria where the boy obtained MDMA.

Lab tests carried out with the post mortem revealed the teenager, who died on Thursday after being in a coma since Sunday, had cocaine, heroin, crystal meth and ecstasy in his bloodstream.

More tests will be carried out to find out if the drugs were taken in one go or had accumulated in his bloodstream over a period of time.

Three men from Syria were remanded in custody earlier this week in connection with the case including a 28-year-old man believed to have supplied the teenager with drugs at a café in Trachoni, Limassol, as well as the cafeteria’s manager, aged 39.

The two were remanded for eight days while the third suspect, aged 25 was remanded for seven days. They face charges including supplying, possessing and illegal use of narcotics.

They were re-arrested after the teenager’s death and now face charges of manslaughter.
