The arrest of the 63-year-old pensioner by the Narcotics Prosecution of the Mykonos Port Authority took place yesterday at 10am.

The 63-year-old is slowly selling off his property in order to secure cash to satisfy his addiction.

He was returning on the Cyprus-flagged World Champion Jet ship from the port of Piraeus. The officers of the Mykonos Port Authority, who had information about the well-known Mykonian, arrested him as soon as they saw him disembark. They blocked him and checked him.

The 63-year-old had bags of brown powder (probably heroin) weighing 3 grams in his underwear.

He also hid six transparent packages with a substance in the form of a rock (probably heroin) with a total weight of 30.43 grams.

A search carried out at his home found packages with about 180 grams of cannabis, methadone in liquid form, and a precision scale.
