A 22-year-old man faces multiple charges after a vehicle was clocked going more than twice the speed limit on Highway 401 northeast of Chatham, provincial police say.

Officers pulled over an eastbound vehicle going 210 km/h near Duart Road about 11:30 p.m. Friday, Chatham-Kent OPP said Monday. Police seized 10 grams of marijuana from the vehicle, OPP said.

An Etobicoke, Ont., man, 22, is charged with drug possession, racing and driving without a licence. Driving 50 km/h or more over the posted speed limit, an offence under the Highway Traffic Act, carries an automatic seven-day licence suspension and vehicle impoundment. A conviction carries a fine between $2,000 and $10,000, six demerit points, up to six months in jail and a licence suspension of up to two years.
