Late on Tuesday 8th August 2023, officers in Lancaster sighted a vehicle which was flagged to have cloned number plates.
The vehicle was stopped on Mooreside Road, Brookhouse, to which two people were in the vehicle. They were searched, as well as the vehicle, and a rucksack with a large quantity of suspected Class A and Class B drugs along with cash was found.
A male, 18, from Lancaster, and a female, 18, from Morecambe, were both arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply Class A and Class B drugs. They were taken to custody in Lancaster and have since been released under investigation.
Chief Superintendent Karen Edwards said: “This was an excellent arrest by my officers. Drugs pose a real threat to our communities and blights the lives of good, law-abiding citizens.
“We will continue with our proactive and robust stance to ensure we keep drugs out of Lancashire.”
