Police on Monday arrested a 15-year-old male in Limassol on suspicion of possession of cannabis.

Officers on patrol spotted the 15-year-old in the driver’s seat of a car parked in an area of Limassol on Monday night.

As soon as he saw the officers, the youngster started the car and raced away. He was seen throwing a plastic bag containing a small amount of cannabis out of the window which police seized.

He managed to get away but was found shortly afterwards.

When he was questioned, he reportedly admitted to the possession of the illegal drugs and the traffic offences he had committed.

In Paphos meanwhile, police charged a 15-year-old and his father after the teen was caught driving a car. Police said they stopped a car driven by the 15-year-old boy just after midnight, while his father was in the passenger seat.

The father, who was not wearing a seatbelt, told police he was giving his son driving lessons and he was driving with his consent.

Both father and son were charged and will appear in court later.

A 17-year-old girl was found driving a car in Oroklini without a licence and insurance on Monday evening, police reported. Her father was in the vehicle and told police officers he allowed his daughter to drive. The girl was charged for driving without a licence and the father for allowing it.
