The Sovereign Base Area Police have this week sent out a warning to all road users after heavy rain and strong winds made many of the motorways hugely challenging to drive on. The issue has become even more apparent in recent days, with debris and flash-flooding increasing the danger for drivers.

A search operation carried out by Sovereign Base Area Police officers and sniffer dogs in Dhekelia on February 27 led to a wanted man being arrested on drugs charges by the Cyprus Police in Ayia Napa the following day.
During the search in the Pyla area within the SBAs, approximately one kilogram of what is believed to be cannabis was found close to where the suspect was seen by CyPol officers briefly stopping his car on February 26.
After seizing the substance, which could have a street value of between €3,000 and €7,000 depending on its quality, CyPol officers were able to arrest the man on February 28 when he was seen in Ayia Napa.
