TWO teenage boys are the latest arrests made by North Yorkshire Police in their crackdown on county lines drug dealing.

The 15 and 16-year-old were arrested in Harrogate by plain clothed officers.

Officers from the force’s proactive Operation Expedite team were patrolling in the town when the suspicious behaviour of the pair led officers to approach them.

The suspects initially ran off but were caught following a short foot chase.

Two Kinder eggs containing suspected heroin and crack cocaine were found along with a knuckle duster seized from one of the teenagers.

The boys, both from West Yorkshire, are believed to be involved in county lines drug supply into Harrogate.

The 16-year-old was arrested on suspicion of possessing class A drugs with intent to supply, possessing cannabis and an offensive weapon. The 15-year-old was arrested on suspicion of being concerned with supplying class A drugs.
