Police found a knife, cash and class A drugs in Bedford’s Jubilee Park on Wednesday (June 22).
Officers from Bedfordshire’s North Community team saw a gang drop what appeared to be a weapon at 3.50pm before they fled the scene.
A search of that area proved fruitless – however, a knife and drugs were recovered from the scene.
