Police and customs have confiscated 30 cartons of tobacco and 10 packs of cigarettes after searching an apartment in Peyia and fined the owner of the flat €1900 for possessing duty free goods, the Cyprus News Agency reported on Thursday.

It said that Paphos police and customs officials had searched the apartment of the 48-year-old permanent resident of Cyprus on Wednesday.

Paphos police spokesman Michalis Nicolaou told the news agency that the tobacco did not have the required health warnings and was found to be duty free.

The owner was handed an out-of-court fine for illegally possessing and trading duty free tobacco products and fraudulent evasion of duties and taxes in the Republic.
