Four people have been arrested after police carried out a stop and search while on patrol in Stevenage at the weekend.

Officers were heading along Longcroft Road in the town at about 4.15pm on Sunday when they became suspicious of a man and searched him.

The 23-year-old from Waltham Cross was arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply a class A drug.

Police then entered a house nearby where three men – all from Stevenage and aged 33, 41 and 46 respectively – were arrested on suspicion of theft from a motor vehicle and handling stolen goods.

An eyewitness told the Comet that in total there were four police cars and two vans in attendance.
