Officers also arrested a 40-year-old man from Sheerness after he was stopped on suspicion of traffic offences and was found to have an outstanding court warrant for failing to complete community service. He has since appeared before magistrates, where he was fined and ordered to continue his community service.
A fourth person was arrested on suspicion of shoplifting and going equipped for theft after their vehicle was stopped in Rochester. The 29-year-old from Chatham has since been released pending further enquiries.
Five speeding tickets were also issued during the day with the fastest speed recorded as 46mph in a 30mph zone. Drivers were also reported for using a mobile phone, not wearing a seatbelt, having an excessive window tint and for not displaying the correct sized number plates.
Inspector Steve Bassett, from the Medway Community Safety Unit, said: ‘We regularly carry out these proactive safety operations and although the vast majority of motorists in the Medway towns drive responsibility and in compliance with the law, there is a small minority which do not.
‘If residents do have a concern affecting their area, please do report it to us via our website or by calling 101. Making a report will help us gain an accurate picture on any issues, which we will act upon.’
