A man has been arrested for possession with the intent to supply cannabis after being stopped by police for not wearing a seat belt.
At around 10.30am on December 29 police observed a man driving along Wooton Road, King’s Lynn, poorly and with no seat belt on.
King’s Lynn police stopped the car and the man was breathalysed, with the result coming back negative.
Officers said there was a “strong smell of cannabis” in the car so both the driver and car were searched.
Some of the class B drug was found in the car and a raid was authorised at his home address where more was found.
The man was arrested for possession with intent to supply.
King’s Lynn police tweeted: “Busy day for Team 1. Male stopped for not wearing his seatbelt. Officers then came across a load of cannabis in his car and then his house after we raided it! Male now in the cells. #ShouldOfWornHisSeatbelt#Sgt3121 & the mighty PCs on Team 1.”
