Two people were arrested in the early hours of Saturday 13 July after officers stopped a vehicle on the A350, Melksham. 

Officers were on patrol in the Trowbridge area at approximately 1.30am when they spotted a black Audi on a number of occasions. 

They had reason to stop the vehicle on the A350 in Melksham.  

Both occupants were detained but made off from police – they were detained again quickly and a drugs search was carried out. Both were found to be in possession of cannabis. 

During the incident, an officer was hit to the face. 

A 24-year-old man from Norfolk was arrested on suspicion of possession of a class B drug, and an 18-year-old man from Birmingham was arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply class B drugs, assaulting an officer and obstructing police.  

They have been interviewed and released under investigation while our enquiries continue.

The vehicle was also searched and approximately £10,000 in cash was seized. The vehicle has been seized while further enquiries are conducted on it. 

To report drug activity, call 101.
