Drug Drive Arrests In Caernarfon And Deganwy
Not wearing a seatbelt whilst driving led officers to find a quantity of drugs whilst on patrol in Caernarfon last night (Tuesday, June 28th).
Shortly after 8:30pm officers from the Roads Policing Unit were on routine patrol on the A4086 when they spotted a driver not wearing his seatbelt.
He was immediately stopped where officers also carried out a drugs swipe procedure of which he failed after testing positive for cannabis.
Officers also discovered a quantity of what is believed to be Class B drugs.
The 24-year-old local man was arrested and taken to police custody.
He has since been released on police bail whilst enquiries continue.
And late last night an 18-year-old man was arrested in the Deganwy area after failing the roadside test after testing positive for cannabis.
Officers received a complaint of a car doing handbarke turns in the Colwyn Bay area. The same vehicle was later traced in the Deganwy area by an officer from the Roads Policing Unit.
The 18-year-old man was later released on police bail.
Sergeant Jason Diamond of the Roads Policing Unit said: “The annual Summer Drink and Drug Drive Campaign is in full swing and this is just another reminder that officers are out working hard to catch those responsible for driving under the influence of drink and drugs.”
