Four men are in our cells today, Friday 2 September, following an operation in south Bristol on Thursday evening, 1 September.
The arrests came after officers attempted to stop a car on Lower Bristol Road, Bath, just before 8pm.
The vehicle was driven off at speed. Officers on the ground were supported by the National Police Air Service helicopter in a search for the vehicle and its occupants.
