Police in North Herts seized £13,500 worth of cannabis on Wednesday, March 15 after they stopped a vehicle in Hethermere, Letchworth.
Officers from the North Herts Intervention team, who deal with emergency response queries, were on routine patrol at around 8pm when they spotted a white van that appeared to be travelling at speed.
The officers indicated for the van to pull over and after a thorough search of the vehicle they discovered a black bin liner containing approximately 53 ounces of cannabis.
The three men who were inside the van were promptly arrested on suspicion of Possession of a Class B Drug with intent to supply. They include:
- A 35 year old man from London.
- A 31-year-old man from Hitchin.
- A 38-year-old man from London.
All three men have been released on police bail and are due to return to Stevenage Police Station on May 15.
Between January 1 2010 and December 31 2015, there were 2,436 separate cases recorded by police when quantities of drugs were seized. This is the equivalent of just over one drugs seizure every single day of the year.
The drugs confiscated most commonly are wraps of herbal cannabis. This is followed by cocaine in wrap or powdered form. Amphetamines, heroin and ecstasy occurs much less frequently.
