The woman from Bury was arrested at the scene during the early hours
A motorist who was stopped and searched while driving in Blackpool was found with a shoebox full of weed.
The 60-year-old Bury woman was stopped on Yeadon Way at about 12.30pm on Tuesday (October 26). She was arrested on the scene after police discovered the shoebox full of cannabis.
The woman was arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply class A and B drugs and money laundering. This was part of an ongoing operation by Lancashire Police.
#OpVanquish is a fortnight surge to clamp down on anyone driving illegally or using the road network for criminality.
Sgt Dave Benson, of the Lancashire Police TacOps team, said: “We are just over halfway through another fortnight of Operation Vanquish action, and are continuing to target those who think they don’t need to follow the law, or think it’s acceptable to use the road network for criminality.
“Our message is simple: if this is you, we will catch up with you.”
The arrested woman remains in police custody.
