Staff at a Tesco store in Norfolk have been praised for alerting police to a suspected drink driver.
Officers were called by staff at the store on Hardwick Road in King’s Lynn following concerns about a driver.
Their tip-off enabled police to locate the man, who was then arrested for a string of offences.
In a Twitter post, King’s Lynn Police said the driver provided a positive sample, had no insurance, was driving without a licence and had taken the vehicle without consent.
Elsewhere in the county, Norfolk Police’s special officers said they “stumbled” upon someone in possession of class A and B drugs while searching for a wanted man.
In a Twitter post, they said: “Whilst out searching for a wanted male PCT officers ‘stumbled’ upon a male in possession of class A & B drugs with a large quantity of cash. You never know who’s around the corner!”
