A 14-year-old boy was arrested after a search in Kettering which uncovered a stash of drugs.
Police were in Wellington Street just after 2.20pm yesterday (August 1) when they stopped a teenager and seized 40 wraps of suspected class A drugs.
Officers also found a large amount of cash and two mobile phones.
The boy was arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply class A drugs and has since been released under investigation pending further investigations, a police spokesman said.
