MALE ARRESTED IN MELKSHAM FOR DRUG DRIVING AND NO INSURANCE AND NO LICENCE

Armed Response Vehicle Officers, who were out on patrol, stopped a green Ford Focus after they suspected that it was being driven by an uninsured driver

The vehicle was stopped on Tuesday 5th May at around 3pm on the A350 at Beanacre near Melksham

The male driver, who admitted to officers that he had taken cannabis beforehand was drug tested at the roadside which proved positive

A 40 year old local man was arrested on suspicion of drug driving driving without a licence and insurance and the vehicle was seized

He was taken to Melksham custody and was released under investigation while our enquiries continue

PC David Rooksby said when we stopped the car we noticed that there was a child passenger on board too

This shows total irresponsible behaviour as this driver could have easily caused a collision not only seriously injuring another motorist but the child and himself

The message here is if you get in a vehicle under the influence of drink or drugs you not only risk being caught but also risk injuring or possibly killing yourself and others not to mention losing your vehicle
