On Saturday, September 23, officers from the Heanor Safer Neighbourhood Team were on patrol when a vehicle raised their suspicion along Ilkeston Road, Heanor.

An SNT spokesperson said: “The vehicle failed to stop for officers and items were discarded from the vehicle.

“A detailed search of the surrounding area, with the assistance of our colleagues from Alfreton Police SNT and Derbyshire Roads Policing Unit, resulted in us stopping the vehicle just over the border in Nottinghamshire a short while later.
