Police officers out on patrol in Colchester stopped a van and seized a large amount of suspected cannabis.
They were just finishing dealing with another matter in Colchester when they spotted a Ford Transit in Gascoigne Road in the early hours of Tuesday 7 January.
Due to the nature of how it was being driven, they went to speak to the driver. They found three large bags of suspected drugs following a search of the van.
Smaller bags and drugs paraphernalia were found during a search of an address nearby. The van has also been seized.
The driver, a 42-year-old man from Colchester, was arrested on suspicion of possession of drugs and being concerned in the supply of drugs. He has been released under investigation while we continue our enquiries.
