The motorbike was also seized.
Officers then conducted a search at a nearby property with assistance from Police Dog Chip and a substantial amount of class A and B drugs was recovered. A 34-year-old male was arrested on suspicion of possessing drugs with intent to supply and released under investigation pending further enquiries.
