Police pursuit in Holbury leads to arrest of suspected drug dealer from London
A SUSPECT who fled from police in Holbury was arrested in connection with drug supply offences.
Officers on routine patrols in the village noticed a suspicious vehicle in Faircross Close and approached it shortly before midday yesterday (Wednesday).
A man moved to leave the vehicle but then drove off at speed before abandoning it at the end of the road.
Having searched the area, the officers found him a short distance away in Roewood Close and carried out a stop-and-search.
This revealed class A and B drugs and a quantity of cash, all of which they seized.
Arrested on suspicion of possessing class A and B drugs with intent to supply, the 28-year-old Londoner was later released on conditional bail until Wednesday 16th February pending further enquiries.
