A man who was wanted in connection with drug possession and had escaped arrest eight years ago, has finally been captured.

Huseyin Yildirim has been wanted by police since 2005 and was caught entering the TRNC through Ercan on May 14th.

He had been sought by police in connection with the seizure of one gram of heroin in Guzelyurt. At that time he had escaped before being interviewed by the police.

He appeared at Nicosia Criminal court yesterday, where the judge ordered that he be held for two days while police continue their investigations.
