Earlier this week we arrested a man following a proactive vehicle stop on the M6 near Chorley.

Officers from our Road Crime Unit signalled for a BMW 3 series to stop as it was travelling south on the motorway on Monday (1st July, 2024).

A search of the vehicle found around 12kg of Cannabis thought to be worth around £50,000.

Just to update you, following consultation with the Crown Prosecution Service, Albion Lushaj, 31, of Cherry Tree Lane, Rainham, Greater London has been charged with possession with intent to supply Cannabis.

He will appear at Preston Magistrates Court this morning.
