A man was arrested by Dyfed-Powys Police officers on suspicion of driving under the influence of both drugs and alcohol.

The man was arrested in Fishguard on Wednesday, June 22, when he provided a positive breath test and also a positive drug wipe.

He was taken into custody by Pembrokeshire Roads Policing Unit, where he took more breath specimen tests as well as blood samples.

A spokesperson from Pembrokeshire Roads Policing Unit said: “The male provided two breath specimens just below the legal limit at custody, and no further action was taken for drink driving.

“He has been released under investigation for the drug drive aspect, pending his blood results.”
