SPEED & WEED: Driver caught with drugs after racing through Abbots Langley

 Published on: 9th March 2023   |   By: Bryn Holmes   |   Category: Uncategorized

A driver who was pulled over by police for speeding through Abbots Langley was also found to be in possession of drugs.

Three Rivers Police officers on patrol spotted the speeding driver and pulled him over with the intention of giving him a warning.

However, while speaking to him, they commented on the strong herbal scent they could smell coming from inside the vehicle.

Posting about the offence on social media, Three Rivers Police said: “The driver was quite sheepish and seemed to know what he had done wrong as the officer approached the window.

“Before leaving, the officer could not help but notice a strange smell coming from within the vehicle.

“It was not the alcohol-infused aroma coming from the two passengers after some late-night partying, but more one of the herbal kind. The officer wasted no time pointing out the lovely smell coming from within and asked if there is anything in the that vehicle that shouldn’t be there.

“Like an origami paper swan, the front seat passenger folded and had ‘scents’ to hand over the herbal substance before they were embarrassed being searched whilst watched by the local community.”

Due to the low-level of the cannabis possession offence, the front seat passenger was taken to Abbots Langley Police Station, where they were dealt with out of custody.
