Cannabis arrests in Limassol and Paphos.

Police arrested four young people, three in Limassol and one in Paphos, for various offences, mainly cannabis on Saturday evening.

In Limassol officers said two people aged 18 and 20 were arrested after one, spotting a police patrol on a pedestrian area, threw something on the ground that police said turned out to be half a gramme of cannabis. The 20-year-old was found to have four grammes in his possession.

During the same patrol, officers stopped a 21-year-old on a moped who was not wearing a helmet and subsequently discovered he was driving without a licence or insurance. He was also arrested.

In subsequent searches of the suspects' homes investigations, officers found what they said was a joint, in the house of the 18-year-old and 25 grammes of cannabis in the house of the 21-year-old moped driver.

In Paphos, a 19-year-old was arrested as a drug suspect and for resisting arrest. He had been seen on CCTV entering a house and was reported. When police got there, with the homeowner's permission, they searched the house and found the suspect hiding under a bed. Officers said he had on him a half-smoked joint and 1,200 euros they believe came from drug dealing.
