Detective Sergeant John Molyneux said: “Although the man in question attempted to evade arrest, he was found following a thorough search. "We’d like to thank other residents for their patience as our enquiries were being carried out, and these three people will now be questioned. “If you have any information about suspected drug supply or storage where you are, please come forward directly or via Crimestoppers anonymously and we will take action.”
