Paphos police on Tuesday arrested a man in connection with the illegal possession of drugs and traffic offences.
At around 10pm, members of the drug squad signalled for a car to stop for an inspection.
The driver, a 39-year-old resident of Paphos, picked up speed instead, trying to escape.
Police officers caught up with him a few minutes later.
When they searched the vehicle they discovered two plastic bags containing two grammes of cocaine, some pills believed to be steroids and €1,125 in cash.
At the man’s home 42 packages with 70.5 grammes of cocaine were found, as well as 501 pills and 20 vials with liquid, believed to be anabolic steroids.
The suspect was arrested under a warrant.
