The customs department announced on Monday that it seized a car and 435 bunches of wild asparagus at Ayios Dometios checkpoint.

The announcement says that on Monday morning, authorities stopped a Turkish Cypriot couple inside a car with Turkish Cypriot licence plates while they were trying to cross from the checkpoint at Ayios Dometios.

After an out of court settlement, the couple was instructed to pay €400 as a fine and €200 to get the car back.

The asparagus are now customs office property.
