POLICE in Cumbria have seized an estimated 10,000 pills after stopping and searching a car.
Officers stopped a grey Vauxhall Vectra on the city west by-pass at Carlisle, between the Kingmoor south roundabout and the Etterby roundabout, at about 9.55pm yesterday.
Three men were inside the car and as a result of it being searched, officers located ten tubs of small tablets, estimated to have contained somewhere in the region of 10,000 pills, in the boot of the vehicle.
Police suspect these to be illegal and the three men – all from Bradford and aged 31, 32 and 34 – were arrested on suspicion of possessing controlled drugs with intent to supply. The car was seized by police for further investigation.
The tablets have been seized by police and enquiries are continuing.
All three men have been interviewed and placed on police bail until May 20, pending further enquiries.
