"Officers have also used their powers to stop search a number of people around Wisbech. Nothing was found during these stops.

"And today's top tip, if you try to run from officers with drugs on you, don’t leave your bike, it came in very handy for the officer to keep up with you. We can’t be everywhere, but we could be anywhere!"
