Police have arrested three men on drug charges after searching a vehicle containing £50,000 worth of cannabis in Fulwood.Advertisement
On Sunday, 10 July, around 12.30pm, officers had been on patrol around junction 31A of the M6, where they spotted a vehicle believed to be connected to a drug supply.
They signalled for the vehicle to stop in Fulwood, which the driver did before he ran away, but Police Dog Harv ‘sprung into action’ and caught up with him a short time later.

Police arrested the man, aged 29, from Newcastle, on suspicion of possession with intent to supply Class B drugs, and he remains in police custody.
But the man made a phone call while PD Harv caught up with him, and officers were ‘bemused, to say the least,’ when two more men arrived on the scene, but their vehicle was uninsured, so the police seized it.
Police arrested the two men, aged 43 from Newcastle and 25 from Rochdale, on suspicion of possession with intent to supply Class B drugs.
