A 24-year-old was arrested in Larnaca after a failed attempt to smuggle drugs into a police station for an inmate by concealing them in a chocolate wrapper.

The young man went to the police station on Wednesday night to bring food to a 25-year-old inmate. Officers, however, uncovered two bags which contained 2g of cannabis and about half a gramme of cocaine hidden in a chocolate wrapper.

Police secured arrest warrants for both men.

Smuggling drugs into prisons or holding cells is all too common and involves elaborate tricks.

People have attempted to smuggle drugs in pancakes, cigarettes and even straws.
