A rider has been arrested on suspicion of drug-driving after traffic police officers stopped a quad bike in Beck Row.
Officers from the Norfolk and Suffolk Roads and Armed Policing Team said the quad bike failed to stop for them in the Suffolk village, which is near RAF Mildenhall.
“The rider eventually ran out of road and gave up,” the officers said in a Tweet after the incident on the evening of Monday, April 15.
“He is disqualified from driving and provided a positive @DrugWipeUK for #Cannabis & #Cocaine.
“He has been #arrested and the bike has been #seized.”
