According to the Turkish Cypriot media, the anti-drug squad was following up on a tip-off and the subsequent search of the car revealed amphetamines and a bottle with liquid which is believed to contain a narcotic substance.
The two men were remanded into custody for one day by a court in the north.
Cyprus police have at the moment no information regarding the arrest of Penengaris
