A man caught driving a stolen London licensed private hire vehicle has been arrested in Essex by traffic officers.


The unnamed man also failed a drugs test and was found to be carrying a large bag of drugs.

The offences were highlighted by Chris Rattus, a traffic officer for Essex Police. Mr Rattus said: "Stopped this private hire vehicle and found it was carrying more than just passengers.


"Drivers licence was revoked, he failed a drug test and car turns out to be stolen."

He went on to add: "Burglars and drug dealers sometimes use them in an attempt to avoid detection. Not really stolen for resale."
