Sniffer Dog – no dope

Border Control sniffer dog, Zeyna, was hard at work at the Lokmaci border crossing in Nicosia on Friday. She latched onto 23 year old Alexander Alesksandrov who was crossing over from South Cyprus to the North. Alerted by her actions, border staff stopped and searched Bulgarian born Aleksandrov. He was found to have 2 grams of cannabis hidden in a pocket, hidden in multiple layers of plastic packaging.

North Cyprus police take a hard line on any drug smuggling. Aleksandrov was immediately arrested and the Court ordered that he be detained for 3 days while police investigate several other people thought to be connected to the drugs.
