Police arrested a second person on Sunday in connection with a large amount of drugs that were discovered in Paphos on Tuesday.

The 29-year-old Paphos resident was arrested after a warrant was issued against him.

For the same case a 28-year-old was arrested on Thursday and later put on an eight-day remand.

The case started on the afternoon of Tuesday when a car failed to stop for a police check.

Instead the driver sped up before him and his passenger abandoned the car in the village of Emba and ran off on foot.

The driver was seen throwing a bag onto the roof of an abandoned house, which was later found to contain 1.114kg of cannabis.

A search of the homes of the two men later turned up 10.884kg of cannabis, one kg of cocaine and 75,000 euro in cash.
