A driver who refused to stop for a police check, instead trying to flee was later found positive when tested for drugs, police said on Sunday.
Police were carrying out routine checks on Saturday night on the Nicosia-Limassol highway when they indicated for a driver to pull over.
Instead, he sped up and tried to flee, before being pulled over later by police.
The driver was a 32-year-old, while the vehicle’s road tax had expired in June 2019.
He was arrested for careless and dangerous driving and failing to stop for a police check. He was then given a narcotest which was positive.
He was released to appear in court at a later date.
