STAFFORDSHIRE Police have said that two men from Birmingham have been arrested during an intelligence-led drugs operation which involved a vehicle pursuit in Tamworth today (6 September).
At around 11.40am this morning, a black Ford Focus was sighted on Thomas Street, at the junction with Glascote Road.
A ‘stinger’ was deployed and as the vehicle attempted to evade officers, it was reversed at speed into unattended stationary vehicles and a police vehicle.
Fortunately, there were no injuries during the incident.
A quantity of drugs packages thrown from the Ford Focus were recovered from the scene.
A 25-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply Class A drugs, dangerous driving and failure to stop for a police officer and a 48-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to supply Class A drugs.
Both men remain in police custody and enquiries are on-going.
