Arrests made for possession of class A drugs – crystal methamphetamine – attempted smuggling of chemicals through the Pergamon roadblock

Several arrests were made during joint operations, ahead of Easter, of the British Decelia Police Bases, the Republic of Cyprus Police and the Department of Customs and Immigration of the Bases.

In their announcement the British Bases refer to “multiple arrests”.

It added that “in two of the five planned joint operations that took place in April, arrests were made for possession of Class A drugs – crystal methamphetamine – attempting to smuggle chemicals through the Pergamum roadblock and for various traffic offences. The arrests were made during the collaboration of the three Services to combat the widespread illegal distribution of fireworks and firecrackers during Easter.”

It is also noted that “the use of fireworks and improvised explosive devices (made of pipes) is a problem throughout Cyprus, especially during the Easter period”.

As Senior Constable Michalis Angelidis said, the combination of efforts “allows police officers and operatives to cover a much larger area and detect all crimes, not just Easter crackers. We know that firecrackers at this time are of great concern as they can fall into the hands of children and cause great damage to themselves, others and property”.

He noted that “working side by side with partners us in the Department of Customs and Immigration of the British Bases, the Police of the Republic of Cyprus and the United Nations, we are able to exchange information and identify those who attempt to transfer illegal fireworks from the occupied, to the areas of the Bases and the Republic of Cyprus”.< /p>

Mr. Angelidis explained that there are other arrests not only for the possession of illegal fireworks and he noted that “we are not on the streets trying to catch those who transport fireworks only. Our joint efforts mean that we have personnel on the ground, ready to act and make arrests for anyone trying to break the law,” he said and added that “the two operations that have taken place so far underline our shared commitment”.

The statement also said that with Easter just two weeks away, “police officers from British Bases, both in the eastern and western regions, visited schools to inform children about the dangers of using fireworks and firecrackers”.

Senior Constable Maria Atalioti, who is leading the operation at Akrotiri Police Station said that “our priority is to ensure the safety of our communities and to have a happy festive season for everyone to enjoy, without serious incidents”.

He also noted that “it is important that children understand the dangers involved when playing with fireworks and firecrackers and that's why we're actively engaging the community to make sure we get that message across. Easter is a time of celebration and joy and no family should mourn a loss or a serious injury” concluded Ms. Atalioti.
