The two people arrested in Paralimni for drugs possession were remanded in custody for eight days by Famagusta district court on Wednesday.

The case involves a 37-year-old man, who had tried to get away when ordered to stop at a police checkpoint on Tuesday evening, but instead reversed into the police patrol car. A 43-year-old woman was also in the car.

The man also tried to run away but was caught by the officers straightaway.

After a search of the man’s backpack, police said they found 115 grams of cannabis as well as three grams of cocaine in two separate plastic bags.

Police also carried out searches of the homes, shop and cars of both suspects. They found a truncheon in one of the cars, five 30ml containers with ‘cannabis substances’ in the shop as well as a pack of six anabolic steroids.
