A WOMAN was arrested for failing to appear in court and a young person was found with drugs as police stepped up patrols across Weymouth yesterday.

A spokesman for Weymouth and Portland Police said: "Neighbourhood Officers have been out on targeted patrols throughout the day.

"Despite the town being busy there are no major issues to report from the day shift.

"We were also supported by our colleagues from the British Transport Police today who provided a visible presence at Weymouth Train Station.

"One female was arrested by officers on a fail to appear warrant and a young person was found in possession of drugs after a search.

"Enquires are ongoing. Late turn officers are continuing patrols."
