Three remanded after 3kg of cannabis found (Updated)

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.
