Two remanded after drugs found (updated)

The Larnaca district court on Tuesday remanded two men aged 30 and 37 for eight days in connection with the possession of illegal drugs.

Following a tip off, members of the drug squad attempted to stop a car on a rural road in the Larnaca district on Monday afternoon but the driver, a 30-year-old man, accelerated in a bid to escape.

The vehicle was stopped after it collided with two police cars, causing slight damage.

Officers who searched the 37-year-old passenger in the car found he had 105 grammes of cocaine on him, police said.

Several items from the car were seized as evidence and both men were arrested.

When the home of the 37-year-old man, a resident of Livadia, was searched, officers found 970 grammes of cannabis, another 42 grammes of cocaine and three precision scales.
