A MOTORIST has been charged with various drugs offences after police were called to a Port Glasgow street.

Police responded to a report of a male acting suspiciously in a vehicle on Highholm Street at 2:30am (Monday).

Sergeant Jason Logsdon said: “On locating the male, officers had reason to detain him under misuse of drugs legislation.

“A quantity of substances believed to be cannabis and cocaine were recovered.

“The driver was also subject of a drug-driving roadside test which allegedly proved positive for cocaine.”

The 34-year-old will be reported to prosecutors.

Area commander Chief Inspector Paul Cameron said: “This was excellent proactive policing that removed controlled drugs from Inverclyde communities.

“Driving a motor vehicle whilst under the influence of controlled drugs is completely unacceptable and exceptionally dangerous.”
