Fifth arrest after cannabis, fireworks found

Police arrested a 35-year-old man in Limassol on Wednesday to facilitate investigations into the seizure of 30 kilos of cannabis and 300 kilos of fireworks in December.

He is the fifth person arrested in connection with the case.

The items were confiscated after they were loaded into a van which police tracked and intercepted on December 17, 2020.

Four people, aged 33, 35, 38 and 43, were arrested in connection with the case at the time and remanded in custody.

During the arrest, one of the suspects who tried to escape with his vehicle, was chased and shots were fired at his tyres in an attempt to stop him.
