Two arrests at Larnaca airport for importing controlled medicines

Two men arrested at Larnaca airport for carrying large amounts of controlled medicines in their luggage were remanded for six days on Wednesday.

The 36-year-old and 29-year-old third country nationals had just arrived from Bahrain on Tuesday when officials discovered three boxes containing 2,925 Panadol pills during the search of the 36-year-old’s luggage. The pills fall under the controlled medicines category which require a permit from the ministry of health to distribute.

During the search of the 29-year-old’s luggage police uncovered a further 998 Panadol pills.
