Drug arrests in Yate after car is stopped by police
THREE men have been arrested on suspicion of drug offences after police stopped a car being driven erratically in Yate.
Patrolling officers, including volunteer Special Constables, arrested the men after pulling the car over in the early hours of Sunday, December 30.
A spokesman for Avon and Somerset Constabulary said: “Police saw the vehicle in Greenways Road, Yate, at about 3am. On speaking to the occupants officers believed they could smell cannabis, leading to a search of the car.
“We seized suspected cannabis as well as 24 small bags of white powder.”
A 19-year-old man from Filton, a 21-year-old man from Coalpit Heath and a 22-year-old man from Frampton Cotterell were all arrested on suspicion of possessing drugs with intent to supply. They have been released on police bail pending forensic tests on the substances.
