The officers were on patrol in Weavers Park on Tuesday, October 16 when they spotted a boy acting suspiciously.

The boy, from London, was later arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply drugs.

He was taken into custody and later released under investigation.

A three-figure sum of cash was also seized by the officers.
