Once they’d put him in handcuffs, an officer climbed onto the roof of the Co-op to retrieve a package that was thrown.

The chase took place shortly after 10.15pm and was triggered by the teenager running away from police after they approached a parked car that he was sat inside in Pepper Road. 

The officers, from the Road Crime Team, approached the Seat Leon after checks found it had been previously linked to the supply of controlled drugs.

As the officers walked towards the car, the teenager got out and ran – with his arrest taking place just minutes later.

Meanwhile, a second man who was sat in the driver’s seat remained in the vehicle. The 31-year-old was also arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply Class A drugs after a large amount of cash was found in the car, along with a mobile phone suspected of containing text messages relating to drug dealing.

Both men remain in custody for questioning.

Detective Inspector Lisa Jones, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “This is a good example of why officers always remain vigilant on patrol.

“Having spotted this car parked up late at night with its lights on, officers carried out checks and found it had been previously linked to drug-dealing.

“The passenger thought he could outrun police but failed miserably, not least because a police drone could trace his every step.

“Officers have then recovered drugs from a shop roof and a thorough search of the vehicle uncovered more evidence of drug-related crime.

“As a result we have now taken a large quantity of Class A drugs out of circulation along with a substantial amount of cash. This would probably have gone straight into the pockets of criminals to fund further illicit activity and organised crime.

“For this reason, getting rid of drugs from our streets is extremely important to us as a force and we will continue to take robust action against those involved in drug-dealing.”
