Officers from OPU Warwickshire stopped a 27-year-old Rugby man on Dunchurch Road yesterday (September 13) afternoon.

After suspecting they smelt cannabis the officers carried out a search of the car - resulting in them finding and seizing cannabis.

The man was arrested on suspicion of possession of cannabis with intent to supply and driving under the influence of cannabis.

He was later released under investigation while enquiries continue.
