Police on Monday made a third arrest regarding the case of a large quantity of narcotics discovered and seized last Saturday in Larnaca.

The individual arrested is a 25-year-old resident of Larnaca, apprehended under a court warrant to facilitate investigations.

Testimony against him was secured during the examinations related to the case.

For the same case, a 19-year-old and a 54-year-old are currently under an eight-day remand. They were arrested last Saturday following the discovery of the narcotics.

The investigation into the case began on the evening of April 6, when police officers found a small quantity of cannabis during a search of the 19-year-old’s car.

Police officers decided to head to his house as well, with the search eventually yielding unexpected results, as they discovered 2.62 kilograms of cocaine, as well as a quantity of cannabis weighing 2.73 kilograms.

The Larnaca drug quad Ykan is still investigating the case.
