In his possession, police said they found 23 unused ampoules, 230 empty balloons and an amount of cash. He was taken to the local police station, charged and released.

In the second incident in Ayia Napa, officers came across the 28-year-old doing the same. He had nine unused ampules, 15 used and 26 balloons.
