Police dogs have helped officers in pursuit of two males who were wanted on suspicion of drug offences in Bury St Edmunds.

There was a hive of police activity around the Macebearer pub area, near the Hardwick shops, in the town this afternoon at about 2.45pm.

A total of five local officers and two dog units were involved in detaining the males, who were arrested for being concerned in the supply of class A drugs and are now in custody.

One suspect is from Bury St Edmunds and the other, a teenager of about 17, is from the London area.

A spokesman for Suffolk police said this was a targeted patrol in the area.
