Police were called shortly after 10am on Wednesday (November 15) with a report a motorist had been seen driving dangerously, with smoke coming off the vehicle.
Officers attended and located the vehicle in Kingsholm with the motorist in the process of pulling away.
A man in his 30s from Gloucester was arrested on suspicion of driving while under the influence of alcohol and other driving offences.
Following a search of the vehicle a quantity of suspected cocaine was seized, and he was further arrested on suspicion of the possession of class A drugs.
It was soon established that the man had been to a nearby shop, and police dogs who were on training were brought in to do some searches.
Further drugs were found concealed inside the shop and a large quantity of cash was also seized. A second man, also in his 30s and from Gloucester, was arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply class A and B drugs. They both remain in police custody.
