Man arrested after cannabis plant find

A 37-year-old man was arrested on Thursday after the drug squad found 30 cannabis plants and 90 grammes of cannabis in a residence he rented in Limassol.

According to drug squad spokesperson Stelios Sergides, the 37-year-old, who was known to the police for previous drug cases, was initially arrested for offences involving high alcohol consumption and causing a public nuisance.

A search warrant was issued following his arrest for a house he rented in Limassol, not his permanent residence which is located in another part of the city.

During the search, 90 grammes of cannabis were found in a freezer, while 30 cannabis plants, ranging from 20 to 100 centimetres in height, were found in a specially designed room with lighting, ventilation and water supply systems.

Police are investigating certain allegations made by the 37-year-old, who will be brought before the Limassol district court on Friday.
