COCAINE worth £30,000 has been seized by police after they stopped a car in Rugby on Tuesday (October 10) afternoon.
Plain-clothed detectives from Rugby Proactive CID spotted a suspicious vehicle while out on patrol.
They followed the vehicle and saw a known drug user get into it before getting out a few seconds later.
When the detectives tried to stop the car in York Street the driver fled on foot before being detained. A search uncovered 22 street deals of cocaine and cash.
A search of a nearby house linked to the arrested man led to the seizure of a quarter kilo of cocaine along with more cash.
The 19-year-old man from Rugby was arrested on suspicion of being concerned in the supply of drugs.
Det Cons Gary Hammond from Rugby Proactive CID said: “This was a significant quantity of drugs, which was likely heading for the streets of Rugby. Bad news if you’re a local drug user but great news for local people who are tired of the impact drug dealing and drug use has on their communities.”
