LARNACA - Three men are in custody in connection with a large seizure of drugs in Larnaca.
Just 48 hours after another drugs haul, the Drugs Squad put an area in the Kalo Chorio area under surveillance after 700g of cannabis was found hidden in a cement pipe.
A 26-year-old Greek Cypriot was seen to pick up the drugs and was stopped after leaving the scene. Police say he has admitted the offence.
Following questioning two more Greek Cypriots, a 39 and 40-year old, from Famagusta, were named as suspects, and arrest warrants were issued. This morning, YKAN searched the homes of the two suspects and confiscated two containers with two kilos of cannabis.
The three men were remanded for eight days by Larnaca District Court.
Police say that their actions have prevented 5.4kg of drugs entering the market.
