Two teenagers were arrested on suspicion of a string of offences after a police search in Stevenage last night.

Police stopped a vehicle in Lonsdale Road at around 11.20pm and, after the occupants made off, they conducted a search of the area – which included a police helicopter.

A police spokeswoman said: “A 19-year-old man from Basildon has been arrested on suspicion of theft of a motor vehicle and possession of Class A drugs and an 18-year-old man from London has been arrested on suspicion of theft of a motor vehicle, possession of a bladed article and assaulting a police officer.”

They both remain in police custody at this time.
