A suspected drug driver who tried to fake their identity when stopped by police has been arrested.
Neighbourhood police officers in Wisbech stopped a man in a Vauxhall vehicle in Grosvenor Road last night (Tuesday).
A spokesperson for Policing Fenland said: “After checks, we found the driver had no insurance, driving on an expired provisional licence and wanted on warrant.”
And following further questioning, police found the man, in his thirties, had failed a DrugsWipe test for cocaine.
“The driver was arrested on suspicion of drug driving and for being wanted on warrant,” the spokesperson added.
“The driver was dealt with for no insurance at the side of the road, the vehicle was seized and recovered.
“They did try and give a false name, but the threat of finger print scanner, produced their real name.”
