A second suspect, a 45-year-old man was also arrested on Friday on suspicion of drug and firearm possession in connection with the younger man’s arrest on February 21.

According to the police, witness testimony has now connected the 27-year-old man with the case involving a drone found on January 12 by a Nicosia resident, which was loaded with 60 grammes of cannabis.
