FOUR people were arrested, drugs and a vehicle seized by officers from our Operational Support Group yesterday (Saturday, November 11).
The officers were on their way to intu Lakesside to carry out Project Servator deployments when the arrests were made.
A 20-year-old man, from Leigh-on-Sea, was arrested and cautioned for possession of Class A drugs after officers stopped the car in which he was travelling on the A13, near the M25 junction, just before 3:30pm.
Three people, a 52-year-old man, a 52-year-old woman and a 42-year-old woman, were arrested on suspicion of theft after officers stopped a car at Moto Services, Thurrock at 4:00pm.
