Three arrests after police find drugs in car

Three men have been arrested after drugs and cash were found in a car they were in following a police pursuit.

Officers noticed a white Mercedes Coupe in Cannock at around 2.55pm on Tuesday. After initially trying to make them stop, the car sped off and suffered slight damage in a crash as it tried to flee.

The car eventually stopped at the back of the Albion pub on Albion Street, Rugeley. All three males in the car were searched and a small amount of cocaine and cannabis were found in the vehicle.

Police said the driver, 31, from Cannock, was also found to be in possession of cash. When police later searched his home, they found cocaine and more cash.
