A taxi driver has been charged with drugs offences after thousands of pills were found at an address.

A Force spokesman said: “Due to community intelligence the taxi was searched and a quantity of pills were located within the taxi resulting in the driver being arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply.

“A search of an address linked to the suspect was searched and thousands of pills were located valued at over £10,000.

“A file was prepared for the Crown Prosecution Service who have reviewed the evidence and have made a decision to charge the suspect with Possession with Intent to Supply Class C x 3 due to there being three different types of pills that were located.”
