POLICE in Hereford arrested two men for different drug related offences within an hour of each other on the same Hereford road last night.

The first car was stopped by police in Edgar Street around 10pm on Thursday night and the driver gave a positive saliva swipe for cocaine, he was arrested and has now been released under investigation to wait for the evidential blood sample to be analysed.

That driver was taken to the police station and shortly afterwards officers stopped another vehicle on Edgar Street after committing a moving traffic offence.

The driver passed the road side swipe, however the passenger was prosecuted for possession of cannabis.
