17 January, 2022 | Local

INVERCLYDE’S police chief has praised pro-active officers who stopped and searched a vehicle in Greenock.

The vehicle, with three occupants, was pulled over on Bank Street at 2am on Saturday.

The search was carried out under police misuse-of-drugs legislation powers.

A male was allegedly found to be in possession of a lock-back knife and a small quantity of drugs, believed to be cocaine.

The 21-year-old driver was required to provide a sample of saliva for a roadside drug screening test which he allegedly failed.

A male passenger charged with possession of a controlled drug.

Area commander Chief Inspector Paul Cameron said: “This is another excellent example of pro-active work being done by local officers to address the possession of illegal drugs and offensive weapons in Inverclyde.

“Anyone with information regarding other illegal drugs should contact Police on 101 or Crimestoppers 0800 555 111.”
