We’ve charged a 23-year-old man with weapon and drug offences after officers stopped a car in the Lawrence Hill area of Bristol yesterday.

Sakaria Abdi, of Belmont Street in Bristol has been charged with two counts of possession of class A drugs with intent to supply (crack cocaine and heroin) and possession of a knife in a public place (a hunting knife).

The charges relate to an incident in which plain clothed officers carrying out proactive patrols stopped a vehicle in a car park off Earl Russell Way at about 2.30pm.

Abdi is due to appear before Bristol Magistrates’ Court today (July 27).
