Officers from the North Flintshire Neighbourhood Police Team, along with the North Wales Police Special Constabulary, made an unexpected arrest in Bagillt this evening, Thursday, August 10.

The incident began while officers were explaining to a motorist that “no matter how much you need the loo, you cannot break the law.”

During this interaction, a male cyclist passed by, “smelling very suspiciously and acting evasively.”

Once the motorist was allowed to leave, the officers turned their attention to the nervous cyclist.

Upon locating and engaging in a brief conversation with the individual, he was detained for a stop search.

The search revealed an extendable police-style baton, a blade, and some cannabis.

The male was subsequently arrested for possession of an offensive weapon, possession of a bladed article, and possession of cannabis.

He has now been charged with these offences.
