Is this what your referring to?

Acts 5

5 And when they were at Salamis, they preached the word of God in the synagogues of the Jews: and they had also John to their minister.

6 And when they had gone through the isle unto Paphos, they found a certain sorcerer, a false prophet, a Jew, whose name was Barjesus:

7 Which was with the deputy of the country, Sergius Paulus, a prudent man; who called for Barnabas and Saul, and desired to hear the word of God.

Hi went looking for the verses - its actually Acts 13:5-7 (KJ)


Acts 13

5 And when they were at Salamis, they preached the word of God in the synagogues of the Jews: and they had also John to their minister.

6 And when they had gone through the isle unto Paphos, they found a certain sorcerer, a false prophet, a Jew, whose name was Barjesus:

7 Which was with the deputy of the country, Sergius Paulus, a prudent man; who called for Barnabas and Saul, and desired to hear the word of God.

You are asking two questions, it seems.

Ananias and Sapphira (Acts 5) had willfully attempted to deceive the Holy Spirit. Had they been allowed to continue, the integrity of the infant church would have been seriously comprised. The evil had to be removed from among them.

As to where Paul and Barnabus encountered Elymas the Sorcerer, it was at Paphos on the Island of Cypress (Acts 13:8).
