According to Phileleftheros, acting on a tip off, police on Saturday followed a car with the two men inside on Limassol-Nicosia highway.

Around 12 pm, the two men stopped at a supermarket parking lot near the Skarinou exit.

According to police, one of the men got out of the car and walked towards another car where he was handed a bag.

Then, the two men headed towards Limassol.

Police stopped them near Yermasogia roundabout and after searching their car, found 1,021 grams of cannabis, 8 grams of cocaine and €2,745 in cash.

Officers arrested the two men, which reportedly admitted to possessing the drugs.
