A man has been charged with failing to provide a specimen of blood for analysis following a multi-agency day of action in Lowestoft.
Suffolk police stopped 85 vehicles as part of Operation Showdown on Monday, March 25 – with just 12 of the vehicles leaving the site at Belvedere Road clear.
With nine men arrested during the day, eight men were arrested on suspicion of drug-driving. Seven of these offences were for cannabis, with one for cocaine.
One man was arrested for an outstanding warrant following a breach of a community order, while 65 Traffic Offence Reports were issued.
With the men all taken to Great Yarmouth Police Investigation Centre for questioning, a police spokesman said: 'A 54-year-old man from Lowestoft was subsequently charged with failing to provide a specimen of blood for analysis and has been bailed to appear at Great Yarmouth Magistrates' Court on Wednesday, April 10.'
