A man suspected to be driving whilst over the drug drive limit was stopped by Police in Shanklin overnight, with officers discovering more than they had bargained for.
The 49-year-old was pulled over in Palmerston Road shortly after midnight and failed a roadside drugs test, which checks for the presence of cannabis and cocaine. He was arrested on suspicion of the driving offence and the vehicle – a grey Vauxhall Corsa – was searched.
During the search, Police discovered suspected Class A drugs, cash and a set of weighing scales.
The Shanklin man was further arrested on suspicion of being concerned in the supply of Class A drugs.
He remains in custody at this time.
