Officers were alerted to concerns of suspected drug dealing in the St Anthony’s Road area on Tuesday (February 6).

Two men seen in a nearby alleyway were subsequently searched under Section 23 the Misuse of Drugs Act.

This search was negative and the pair were sent on their way.

Police then searched a nearby property where they found a large amount of suspected Class A drugs, cash and mobile phones.

“Weapons including a knuckle duster and Rambo style knife were also seized,” a spokesman for Lancashire Police said.

A 16-year-old boy from Nelson, a 19-year-old man from Manchester and 57-year-old man from Preston were arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply a Class A drug and money laundering.
