Remand after over 30kg cannabis seized


A 26-year-old suspect was remanded by Limassol district court on Saturday morning after over 30kg of cannabis was found in his possession, with reports saying he is not cooperating with the police.

The police are now seeking to uncover the suspect’s supplier and other links in the network.

The young man was arrested on Friday after Ykan (drug squad police) received a tip off and subsequently stopped his vehicle along the Nicosia-Limassol highway by the Agia Fyla exit.

Initial investigations led officers to uncover 29 nylon packages from the car which contained 31.8kg of cannabis, along with €940 in cash.

A follow-up search at the suspect’s house led to the discovery of a further 30g of cannabis.

Police added that even though the suspect is not cooperating with the investigating officers the suspect appeared before Limassol district court where he was remanded for eight days.
