A TEENAGER has been arrested for a number of offences after being stopped by police in Elderslie.

Officers from the Alcohol and Violence Reduction Unit pulled over the driver of a blue Vauxhall Astra in Hillview Road at around 12.20am today.

It is alleged that, when police searched his vehicle, they found eight wraps of cocaine and 24g of herbal cannabis.

The drugs are believed to have an estimated street value of around £500.

Police said the 19-year-old suspect had no driver's licence and was also in breach of his bail curfew conditions.

He was taken into custody and is due to appear at Paisley Sheriff Court today.
