A 34-year-old man was remanded for six days on Tuesday after police in Larnaca arrested him in connection with the importation of 7.2 kilos of cannabis.

It followed a tip-off concerning a suspicious package that arrived at a post office in Larnaca.

Customs officers and members of the drug squad examined the package and found it to contain cannabis.

Police monitored the place and when the suspect went to collect the package, signing the recipient form with a fake name, he was immediately arrested.
