A 37-year-old man in Paralimni is in custody after he was found in possession of approximately 300g of cannabis during a routine traffic check.

According to Famagusta police spokesman Steve Theodoulou, the man was stopped at around 8pm on Monday.

When police officers approached his vehicle, they sensed a strong smell of cannabis coming from inside the man’s car.

Upon further investigations, they found a small bag containing the cannabis.

He was immediately arrested and taken to the closest police station, where he underwent a narcotest, which came out positive.

The 37-year-old will now have to appear in front of the Famagusta criminal court at a date yet to be set.
