A DRIVER has tested positive for ‘every possible kind of drug’ after being pulled over by police. 

The reckless 42-year-old had cocaine, opiates, amphetamines, methamphetamines and THC from cannabis in his system.

The Vigo-born local stopped due to his ‘suspicious’ driving near the industrial estate in O Campiño, Galicia.

Police had been taking part in a crackdown on illegal street racing.

“He might have taken more types,” police said, “But these are all the drugs that the machine we’re equipped with can pick up.”

His vehicle was impounded and six penalty points deducted from his licence.

He has also received a €1,000 fine.

He will soon face a court trial for reckless driving and could see three to six months inside and may have his licence withdrawn for a year.
