Launita Cuff, Star Writer

Five men were arrested on Tuesday after 40 pounds of ganja was discovered in the vehicle in which they were travelling. Reports are that police from the Manchester Highway Patrol were patrolling in Kendal when they signalled a grey 2004 Toyota Fielder motor car to stop.

The driver is alleged to have disobeyed and the police gave chase, which ended along the Cool Shade road where the vehicle was found with a punctured tyre.
