The teen has been notably arrested for possession with intent to supply class B drugs and failing to stop for police. Speaking about the incident, Chris Scammell, a Chief Inspector from the Central East Command Unit, applauded the officers involved. According to Ladbible, Scammell said: “This was an excellent piece of police work with our volunteer officers from the special constabulary stopping this boy after their suspicions were aroused and seizing drugs and cash.”

“It’s solid work like this that has a real impact on keeping our communities safe. Inquiries have confirmed that the boy arrested does not work for a food delivery service, and we believe he was using this as a front to organize drug deals.” Nonetheless, the news of the arrest has since sparked a debate in the comments, with many people disagreeing on whether this is a good use of police time.
