Drug driving double


Somerville Highway Patrol officers experienced a case of double trouble in Frankston South on Thursday evening (13 July).

Police intercepted a car on McMahons Road about 5.25pm and spoke to the driver, a 47-year-old Cranbourne East woman.

She underwent a preliminary drug test which returned a positive result and she was then required to undergo an evidentiary result at a police station.

She left the station and told police she would get someone to pick her up.

The officers returned to their duties and noticed the same car on Frankston-Flinders Road.

They intercepted the vehicle and found a 45-year-old Crib Point man behind the wheel.

He returned a positive preliminary drug test and had to undergo an evidentiary test.

Police will await the results of the tests but the 45-year-old man is expected to be charged with unlicensed driving.
