Police crackdown on laughing gas sales

By Christophe Hadjigeorgiou

Police arrested five people in the Famagusta district on Thursday night in connection with the sale of laughing gas.

The five individuals, aged 17, 23, 28, 29, and 50, were found with a total of four metal bottles, 22 used and 271 unused ampoules, 123 balloons, and €406.70 in cash. All the items were seized as evidence.

Authorities have been working on an organised crack-down on the laughing gas market. The Crime Prevention Units of Larnaca and Famagusta have joined forces to cover both Ayia Napa and Protaras.

The individuals were charged and are expected to appear before the court, while Ayia Napa and Paralimni police continue investigations.
