A motorist was arrested on suspicion of drug-driving.
Police arrested the driver following a "minor traffic offence" on the A146 at Worlingham last week.
Officers from Lowestoft Police said they had stopped a vehicle and the driver then gave a positive drug-wipe.
Police can stop a driver who they think is on drugs, after which they can use a roadside drugs kit to carry out a test on the motorist and screen for cannabis and cocaine.
