Last night, at approximately 11pm, Gardaí from Midleton on patrol in Ballycotton observed a car failing to observe a stop sign.

The driver was pulled over by Gardaí and tested positive for the presence of cannabis after a drug test was carried out.

"Strong smell of cannabis coming from car so roadside drug test carried out with positive result.

"Arrested and conveyed to Midleton Garda station where blood sample provided. Court case pending full analysis. Never drive while intoxicated," Gardaí said.
