Police Headquarters reported that the driver was stopped at about 21:30 hrs Friday; he was driving a silver-grey Toyota Premio (#PNN 7493).

Police reportedly stopped the vehicle and the 40-year-old driver was asked if he had anything illegal in the car. The driver then indicated to the ranks that he had “some weed.”

Police then searched the car and found a black plastic bag containing two parcels of leaves, seeds and stems suspected to be cannabis.

The driver was told of the offence committed, cautioned, arrested and escorted to the Providence Police Station along with the suspected narcotics, which, when weighed, amounted to 2,050 grammes.

He remains in custody and is slated to be charged.
