The passenger in a VW Golf stopped by police in the early hours of the morning was found to have a knife hiding down their trousers.

Wiltshire's Specialist Operations team were out policing the roads of Swindon with the Road Policing Unit on April 2 when they pulled over a VW Golf in the early hours of the morning.

It is not clear what the Golf was originally stopped for, but after searching the car and the occupants, police officers made a shocking discovery.

Wiltshire Police Dogs who were put to work at the scene discovered that the passenger of the vehicle was in possession of a knife which was found down their trousers.

"Two occupants were arrested for various offences including possession of a bladed article found down the trousers of the passenger," said a spokesperson for Wiltshire Police.

Officers shared a photo of the silver VW Golf alongside the two knives found.
