Police detain two teenagers in Harrogate

  • Two teenagers have been arrested on suspicion of drug offences.
  • The 17-year-old and 19-year-old ran off when spotted by an officer.
  • They were later detained on Stray Rein; one was reportedly carrying a 9in knife and class B drugs.

Two teenagers were arrested in Harrogate on Thursday (9 April) on suspicion of drug offences.

At around 5pm, the 17-year-old boy and 19-year-old man were seen to run off when they spotted a police officer.

Officers found the 19-year-old a short time later on Stray Rein and recovered an object from undergrowth near a railway track believed to have been discarded by him.

The object turned out to be a 9in knife inside a sheath.  

Officers also seized herbal matter, believed to be cannabis and an amount of cash found in his possession.

Police officers

The 17-year-old who also ran from the police was arrested a short time later on Stray Rein and found in possession of £400 in cash and keys to a car parked nearby that had driven off from police officers earlier that day.

The 19-year-old was arrested on suspicion of possessing class B drugs with intent to supply and possessing a knife.

The 17-year-old was arrested on suspicion of being concerned in the supply of class B drugs.

They were both released while under investigation to allow for further inquiries to be carried out.
