Two men and a teenage boy have been arrested on suspicion of theft and drug offences after officers stopped a suspicious vehicle yesterday (Wednesday 26 October).
We stopped a silver Mazda MG 3 on Fairview Road, Wolverhampton, at 1.35am on Wednesday.
A screwdriver, gloves, knuckle dusters, car keys, mobile phones and a small quantity of suspected class B drugs were seized, along with the vehicle.
We then carried out searches of properties in Wolverhampton and seized further suspected class B drugs, cash, mobile phones and scales.
A 24-year-old man and a 16-year-old boy, both from Wolverhampton, were arrested on suspicion of going equipped for theft of a motor vehicle, being in possession of class B drugs and possessing an offensive weapon in a public place.
A 25-year-old man, also from Wolverhampton, was arrested on suspicion of going equipped for theft, being in possession of class B drugs and possessing an offensive weapon in a public place and driving while unfit through drink.
All three have since been granted conditional police bail while our inquiries continue.
