A man from Stratford has been arrested on suspicion of drug driving offences in Colchester.
The 25-year-old was stopped in the Essex town yesterday (Tuesday, May 5).
He is among six men - the other five being from Essex - to remain under investigation following operations in Colchester and Clacton to stop suspected drug drivers.
Chief Inspector Lily Benbow said: “These arrests clearly show that we’re taking action to deal with road crime within our communities.
“Don’t think we’re not out there and that you won’t be stopped. We have officers in plain clothes and in unmarked vehicles ready to take action.”
