A man drove 250 miles from Kent to North Wales for a camping trip – before being arrested on suspicion of drug driving.
A spokesman added: “Not only that, both the driver and passenger were reported for breach of Covid restrictions as they had travelled to the area from Maidstone in Kent to go camping.”
In Wales, “stay local” rules are now in place, but they still mean people should only travel around five miles from home as a “rule-of-thumb”.
The roads policing unit added that a number of drug drive arrests had been made in recent days.
They added: “Other drug drive arrests have taken place in Old Colwyn, St Asaph, Ewloe, Llangefni, Northop, Abergele, Glyndyfrdwy, Chwilog, Caernarfon, Denbigh, Llandudno Junction and Rhostyllen.
