Two men aged 25 and 64, were remanded for six days by the Larnaca district court on Saturday on suspicion of possessing 85 grammes of cannabis, police said.

According to authorities, just after 4pm on Friday, officers went to the suspects’ home with an arrest warrant following information they were possession of drugs.

Police said when the 25-year-old saw officers approaching, he attempted to flee and when he was eventually stopped by police, he allegedly attacked them.

They said that during a subsequent search of the house, they found a hiding-spot in the garden where they discovered three plastic bags containing in total 85g of dried cannabis after which they arrested the 64-year-old.

Police said the younger suspect confessed possessing the cannabis but the 64-year-old denies any involvement.

The 25-year-old is also facing charges of resisting arrest, and threatening a police officer.
