The latest arrest, a 32-year-old man, happened at around 1.45am today (October 18) when officers searched a house on Ashwood, Longton and found a quantity of class A drugs and money.

He was arrested on suspicion of possessing class A drugs with intent to supply.

Earlier, at around 4.15pm yesterday (October 17) , officers pursued a silver Toyota car from Anchor Road, in Longton.

Two men, 32 and 24, abandoned the car in Mill Lane, Wetley Rocks where it was recovered by officers.

The men, both from Liverpool, were arrested on suspicion of being concerned in the supply of class A drugs with intent to supply.

Inspector Sean Clark, of Stoke-on-Trent Central Local Policing Team, said: “We’ve made another three arrests overnight as our work continues to tackle organised criminal activity and the supply of illegal drugs within our community.

“We will act fast and decisively to take drugs off Staffordshire streets to keep our communities safe from harm and to protect the vulnerable.

“We would welcome information members of the public can share with us.”

All three men remain in police custody.
