Police raided a public high school in Paphos arresting three suspects including a student, in connection with illicit drug trade.
According to media reports, cops from the anti-drug unit had two suspects under surveillance for contraband. Police put a tail on the two men, aged 21 and 22, until they followed them into a public high school in Paphos on Monday where they met with a 16-year-old male student.
Police said the high school student and the two suspects appeared to know each other, and all three individuals were placed under arrest and taken to the station for further questioning.
The arrests come months following public accusations by Paphos Mayor Phedonas Phedonos, who accused law enforcement officials of knowing and tolerating drugs in schools.
Phedonos, a well-known whistleblower in Cyprus, went on the radio last summer to say that cops in the anti-drug squad were rubbing shoulders with drug dealers.
