A passenger at Ankara’s Esenboga Airport was seized on his way to the TRNC with 8.5 kilos of marijuana in his suitcase.

Romanian Marian Florian Panton had originally set off from Holland but was found out as he was transferring flights at Ankara.

Customs dogs Emily and Dolly sniffed out the drugs even though they had been vacuum-packed in his suitcase.

Mr Panton has made a statement confessing that he was a drugs mule but saying that he was unaware of his suitcase contents. He had been paid 1000 Euros for the job.
