Police in Limassol on Friday arrested a man for having committed a raft of crimes, including arson, writing death threats, and trafficking drugs.

The man, aged 43 was arrested while travelling to the north at the Ayios Dhometios crossing point on Thursday, though police said they had released the man’s details to the public as early as December 2021.

Police said the man had written death threats and other threats of violence during the summer of 2022, and that he had illegally possessed 3.5 kilograms of cannabis with the intent to supply during November and December 2021.

The cannabis was found and seized by police.

The man is also accused of having attempted to “destroy property with explosives”, after an improvised explosive device was placed under a parked car and exploded in June last year, and another “incendiary object” was thrown at a house in the same month.

In addition, the man is accused of arson, after having allegedly set fire to two cars. The arsons are reportedly related to the death threats he wrote.
