Two arrested after supermarket chase

A Scunthorpe teenager suspected of drugs offences was chased around a local Asda supermarket by a special constable.

The special constable from Humberside Police followed two men in a car who were suspected of speeding into a car park on Burringham Road just after midnight on Friday, June 17.

When they were questioned, the officer suspected that the men may have been taking drugs.

Two other officers were called for support. When they arrived, one of the suspects ran off into the supermarket. The special constable then gave chase and after a short pursuit around the store the suspect was caught.

An amount of cannabis was found after a search. The man, 18, from Scunthorpe, was arrested on suspicion of possessing a class B drug with intent to supply and obstructing a police officer.

The other suspect in the car was also arrested and both men are still in custody.

The 24-year-old also from Scunthorpe was arrested on suspicion of drug driving, driving while unfit through drink or drugs, and possession with intent to supply a class B drug.
