Officers on cycle patrol met with fresh breeze and ‘very strong smell of Class B’

PSNI officer on cycling patrol along County Antrim’s Causeway Coast

Two males are set to have their day in court after police officers on cycle patrol along the Causeway Coast today, Sunday 17th March, were met with a fresh breeze and a very strong smell of Class B - cannabis.

Ballycastle Neighbourhood Policing Team (NPT) officers made their way around the town before heading to Cushendall and Waterfoot. It was while cycling into a car park in Cushendall that the officers were rewarded for their pedalling patrols.

A PSNI spokesperson explained:

"As the Officers stopped their bikes to run checks on the suspected vehicle, the vehicle got spooked and left the car park and went into the town.

"Unfortunately for them, we caught up with them and pulled the vehicle over with the assistance of a colleague in a vehicle.

"The vehicle indeed had a very strong smell of Cannabis and both occupants surrendered the drugs they had on them. The vehicle and persons were searched but nothing else was found. Not only were both persons dealt with for Possession of Class B but they were also dealt with for driving offences.

"Unfortunately the driver was driving his friends car, and the friend had allowed him. The driver wasn’t insured and as a result he was cautioned and reported for Driving with No Insurance and his passenger/friend for Permitting No Insurance.

"Both males have been interviewed for the offences and will see their day in court soon. Stay Safe!"
