A TEENAGE boy was arrested over drug allegations.

North Yorkshire Police said the 16-year-old was arrested at a property in Dragon Road, Harrogate, at about 12.55pm on Thursday, July 26.

A spokesman for the force said the boy was arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply a Class A drug, and items were seized at the scene, including cash, an amount of tablets, and a mobile phone.

The spokesman said the arrest was part of Project Shield, a new partnership between North Yorkshire Police and British Transport Police to prevent cross-border criminality.
