POLICE found hundreds of pounds worth of cannabis when they stopped a car in the city.

Officers pulled the vehicle over in Rainbow Hill, Worcester, at around 1pm on Wednesday, after watching it turn right four times in a row.

A woman and a man inside the car were arrested on suspicion of supplying drugs, after police found them in possession of edible cannabis sweets and marijuana.

The driver also failed a roadside drugs test.

Alan Evans said: “I saw a police car pull a car over by the Bridge Inn pub. A lady got out the driver’s side and a male from the passenger’s side, both were searched and then the police searched their car.”

Local Policing Priority Team (LPPT) Inspector Jamie Francis said: “LPPT officers on proactive patrol stopped a vehicle on Wednesday on Rainbow Hill, upon a search of the vehicle we found a considerable quantity of cannabis which has been seized and won’t make it onto the streets of Worcester.

“The driver of the vehicle was subject of a roadside drugs swipe, which she failed. She was also arrested for driving a motor vehicle with a specified controlled drug in body in excess of the specified limit.

“Driving whilst under the influence of drugs is a significant factor in road deaths and puts other road users and the public at risk. We will continue to target those that flout the law and put others at risk.”

A 20-year-old woman from Pershore was arrested for driving whilst under the influence of drugs and possession of a controlled drug with intent to supply.

A19-year-old man from Worcester was arrested for possession of a controlled drug with intent to supply.

Both have been released under investigation.

Anyone with information can ring police on 101 quoting the incident number 280s of April 10.
