Police on Sunday said it was investigating a second attempt in a span of a few days to smuggle drugs to a prisoner held in Paphos.
A 36-year-old man who works as a mechanic asked to see a man detained at Paphos police headquarters, aged 39, to give him food and clothing.
After the items were inspected, officers found a transparent, sealed off plastic straw, hidden inside a pancake, which contained a crystal-like substance weighing 0.3 grammes which appeared to be methamphetamine.
The 36-year-old was arrested and while being questioned, claimed a woman called ‘Maria’ gave him the food and clothes, asking him to pass it on to the 39-year-old detained man. He claims he does not know the woman.
A few days ago, someone else attempted to give the 39-year-old methamphetamine in a shampoo bottle, which was also found by police.
