We’ve arrested a man and a boy after finding crack cocaine, cannabis and a knife in Burton-on-Trent.
At 1.50pm on Wednesday (7 June), we spotted a black Vauxhall Corsa on Edward Street.
The driver of the car failed to stop for us and drove away, later abandoning the car on Sheffield Street.
Officers then found two people in the area and searched them, leading to the discovery of crack cocaine, cannabis, scales, cash, mobile phones and a knife.
An 18-year-old man, from Burton-on-Trent, was arrested on suspicion of being concerned in the supply of crack cocaine, possession of cannabis and dangerous driving.
A 16-year-old boy, from Burton-on-Trent, was arrested on suspicion of being concerned in the supply of crack cocaine, dangerous driving, failing to stop and possessing a knife in a public place.
Both have been released on conditional police bail while inquiries continue.
We are continuing to work with West Midlands Police and the Regional Organised Crime Unit; Operation Target, to disrupt drug-related activity across Staffordshire.
Operation Target will see officers robustly targeting those committing serious and organised crime across Staffordshire.
