A large amount of Class A drugs and cash were seized after a vehicle was stopped by police near the M4 over the weekend.

A white Audi A5 was stopped by officers around 9.50pm on Saturday, April 13, as it was being driven southbound on the A350, having just left the M4.

The driver, a 30-year-old man from Chippenham, was arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply Class A drugs.

A large block of what is believed to be cocaine was found in the glovebox of the car and is estimated to have a street value of between £4,000 and £6,000.

Officers then visited an address in Long Close, Chippenham, where they seized around £7,000 in cash.

The man has been released under investigation while police enquiries continue.

Det Con Keith Harford, from Central CID, said: "We believe this arrest has disrupted a large-scale drug dealing operation where Class A drugs have been brought into the county to sell to people in and around the Chippenham area.

"Taking these drugs off our streets can only be a positive thing - especially when you consider the knock-on criminality that drug dealing and substance abuse bring to our communities."

Anyone with information about drug dealing should contact Wiltshire Police on 101, or 999 if a crime is in progress.
