Police said on Saturday they had found around 10kg of cannabis hidden in 11 separate bags, hidden under grass at different spots in a rural part of Nicosia.

The find began with a traffic stop following a tip-off when the driver, 48, from Larnaca was physically searched and police said they found a small amount of cannabis in his shoe.

He then led them, they said, to different spots in the surrounding area where they found 11 packages hidden under grass, totalling 10kg of cannabis.

The man’s home in Larnaca and his father’s home in Nicosia were subsequently searched but nothing was found.

The suspect was taken into custody and will appear in court for a remand hearing.
