Weapons And Drugs Seized In Car Spot Checks
7:02am 7th October 2014
A police crackdown on drivers in Saltash turns up a knuckle duster, drugs and even a missing person.
It is after a three day operation around the town and Tamar Bridge.
In all 43 orders were dished out for thing like using mobiles or not wearing a seatbelt.
There were arrests for drink driving, drugs and possession of weapons.
Two vehicles were seized because they were not properly insured.
Sergeant Chris Chilcott frm Saltash Police said: “Successfully recovering a missing person goes to show we aren’t only about stopping criminals. The essence of this operation, as is with all police work, is protecting the public. Those that live in and around Saltash should feel reassured that the town is a safe place to live and visit.
“With reference to uninsured vehicles, I would like to make a general reminder to any members of the public who continue to drive without a valid insurance policy that your vehicle will simply be seized at the roadside. This will result in hefty costs in order to recover the vehicle and consequently insurance companies may be reluctant to provide cover in the future.
“The success of the operation was thanks to a combination of ANPR technology and local knowledge. It’s to the credit of the local officers involved, the ANPR team, and public intelligence that we had the ability to deal with such a variety of offences that we came across.”
