TWO men allegedly caught with a sum of cash and a knife have been arrested after they tried to outrun cops.

Officers say they observed a motor vehicle being driven off-road on Morar Drive in Paisley shortly before 2am on Friday, February 23.

The two men, aged 35 and 28, reportedly made off from the vehicle after it came to a stop but were arrested a short time later.

Police say that they discovered "a sum of cash" which has been seized under the Proceeds of Crime Act.

Cops charged the pair with possession of a knife, breach of bail and various road traffic offences.

They are set to appear in court at a later date.
