Famagusta district court on Monday remanded three men for eight days in connection with the discovery of three kilos of cannabis.
At around 5pm on Sunday police officers signalled for a car in the area to stop. The 22-year-old driver, who had a 37-year-old passenger, tried to flee and the officers shot at the car tyres to immobilise the vehicle, they said.
During a search of the car officers found a precision scale, a container with traces of cannabis, a capsule believed to contain cocaine and the sum of €1,740.
At the same time, officers found three kilos of cannabis in a fenced-in area where the two men had been seen earlier acting suspiciously.
They were arrested, as was the 44-year-old owner of the piece of land where the drugs were found.
