TWO men have been arrested and a stash of drugs seized in Olton.

Police stopped a car on Warwick Road shortly after 11.30pm last night (Thursday) while patrolling area as part of a response to concerns about vehicle crime.

They had become suspicious when they spotted the car and pulled it over to speak to the driver and passenger.

Their suspicions were raised further as there was a strong smell of cannabis coming from the vehicle and when they searched it they discovered a wrap of cocaine.

Two men aged 20 and 21 were arrested on suspicion of possessing Class A drugs and they were taken to Solihull police station where one was found to have a pouch tied around his waist containing a drug thought to be cannabis.

The second was found to be hiding 30 wraps of suspected cocaine.

PC Soni Pattar from Solihull police station, said: "Our investigation is at the very early stages but we will now question these men to see where, or who, the intended recipients were of these drugs.

"The drugs will be sent off to be analysed and destroyed and the men could face charges of possession with intent to supply."
