Police in the High Peak have been carrying out operations to crack down on criminals moving in and out of Derbyshire.  

Officers from Safer Neighbourhood Teams throughout the borough have conducted four stop searches, including two vehicles which were searched specifically for drugs. 

They have also carried out high visibility patrols within all areas of the High Peak, stopping vehicles, checking details and "deterring criminal activity".

They said: "This can only continue to happen, with the fantastic information forwarded to us by High Peak residents. We have aimed our attention at travelling criminals who are using the road networks in and out of Derbyshire to commit crime. 

"These positive results are clear evidence of how working together is so effective in making the High Peak a safer place to live." 

A 'suspicious' vehicle was clocked in New Mills and immediately drove recklessly at high speed in a bid to evade officers.

The vehicle was found abandoned on a nearby road and seized. It was found to have been stolen from a local property that same evening and was swiftly recovered, as investigations continue.
