Longford gardaí arrest driver under influence of cocaine

Longford gardaí arrested a driver under the influence of cocaine and they also detected a different driver who hadn't taxed their car for two years. 

As part of their #keepingpeoplesafe on St Patrick’s Day campaign, Longford Roads Policing Unit stopped a motorist  while driving unaccompanied and the driver subsequently tested positive for cocaine and was arrested. 

Court proceedings will follow with gardaí advising motorists to never drive under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
