Drugs are found in empty car at Askwith
6:00pm Thursday 17th October 2013 in News
Police dogs and a helicopter were called out to normally tranquil countryside near Otley after drugs were found inside an abandoned car.
The incident began at about 3pm on Sunday, October 6 when a police car on Weston Lane signalled for a vehicle to pull over but it instead drove off towards Askwith.
It was then found abandoned between Weston and Askwith, with a small amount of cannabis inside.
A West Yorkshire Police helicopter and dog unit was brought in to search for the occupants and two men, aged 19 and 22 and both from Bradford, were arrested on suspicion of drugs offences.
The 19-year-old was given a caution while the 22-year-old has been charged with driving without insurance and is due to appear at Leeds Magistrates Court on Thursday, October 24.
