A 44-year-old woman from Peterborough was arrested on suspicion of driving a motor vehicle whilst unfit through drugs, driving without insurance and possession of Class A drugs.

An 18-year-old man from Norwich was arrested on suspicion of possessing an offensive weapon.

Both remain in custody at Thorpe Wood Police Station in Peterborough. The vehicle was seized.

DCI Rob Hall said: “We’d like to thank members of the public who called in with information relating to the car.

“These two arrests are a brilliant example of how members of the public reporting information to us makes a difference, and also shows the work our officers do off the back of that information.

“Sometimes a lot of work goes on behind the scenes that is not immediately obvious to members of the public – but all information supplied to us helps us build a picture of what is happening in a specific area.

“I would strongly urge anyone who suspects drug activity in their area, or knows anyone who carries a weapon, to please report it to us.”
