We found narcotics and doping substances as well

The police followed him and managed to stop him, but he tried to run away.

The driver, a man in his 50’s, appeared to be under the influence of drugs, so the police decided to search his house.

– We found two firearms we think should be licensed. We found narcotics and doping substances as well, says Christine Björklund, press spokesman for the police.

The police have now started a preliminary investigation into a serious case of unlawful driving, infringement of narcotics regulations, drunken driving and weapons offences.
