A man has been arrested and released under investigation after police found ten large bags of cannabis under the seat of a scooter he was driving.
Local police based at Gypsy Hill were called to Lordship Lane Estate, Dulwich, around 6pm on May 7, 2022.
Police said they found a 20-year-old, who was uninsured and banned from driving, acting suspiciously.
Through CCTV work, they established that he’d just been driving a scooter.
On searching the vehicle, they discovered cannabis stashed beneath the seat.
The man has since been released under investigation while police weigh and test the cannabis.
Inspector Tom Cornish said: “This incident underlines the value of neighbourhood police officers using their detailed local knowledge to target local priorities.
“Danger was posed to the public by a man driving while uninsured and disqualified by a court. The officers showed courage and initiative”.
