He was arrested and a quantity of cash and suspected drugs were found in the Mercedes.

The 29-year-old man, of no fixed address, was arrested on suspicion of possession of drugs with intent to supply, failing to stop after an accident, failing to stop when directed, and possession of articles for use in fraud.

He is currently in custody for questioning.
