An early morning road check by officers in the Eastern Districts led to the arrest of a man who supplied a false name to officers and the recovery of a quantity of ganja.
Shortly after 4.00 am on Wednesday (12 October 2011) officers, who were on routine patrol in the Savannah area, saw a white Honda Accord driving at high speed. The officers followed the vehicle and instructed the driver to stop.
When the officers spoke to the driver he provided them with a false name. A subsequent search of the car led to the discovery of over one pound of ganja in the trunk of the car.
The 30-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of possession of ganja with intent to supply, consumption of ganja, and providing a false name to police officers.
