Officers from the Nuneaton and Bedworth Safer Neighbourhood Team and the Nuneaton Offender Management Unit attended a flat on Vernons Lane as part of a separate inquiry yesterday - Wednesday 29th.

While they were there an 18-year-old man from Birmingham, 17-year-old boy from Birmingham, and 19-year-old man from Wolverhampton all jumped out a window and were pursued by officers. A short time later they were arrested on Tryan Road on suspicion of being concerned in the supply of class A drugs.

Five mobile phones, £850 cash, and a quantity of what is believed to be cannabis, were seized during the arrest.

PC Gavin Parrott from the Nuneaton and Bedworth Safer Neighbourhood Team said: "We will take robust action against anyone we suspect to be involved in drug dealing.

"I would encourage anyone who sees or hears anything suspicious that they think could be linked to criminal activity to contact us."

The three males have been released under investigation while enquiries continue.
