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.”
