Man arrested after police seize large quantity of cannabis from abandoned car in Preston
Police have arrested a man following the seizure of a large quantity of cannabis in Preston.
Preston Police took to social media early this morning, revealing how they had seized the drugs following "pro-active policing in the Callon, Ribbleton and St. Matthew's areas of Preston due to recent community concerns about gang-related crime & disorder".
In an update, Sgt Hesketh of Preston Police said "ongoing enquiries overnight" into the abandoned car led the force to "arrest a man from the New Hall Lane area on suspicion of Unauthorised Taking of a Motor Vehicle and Possession of a Controlled Substance with Intent to Supply."
He added: "More drugs were seized from his address. He will be interviewed later today."
