Officers from Cheshire Police have seized a quantity of Class A drugs and two knives following a vehicle stop check in Macclesfield.
At around 3.50pm on Tuesday 1 February, officers stopped a grey Mercedes A180 on Hulley Road.
During a search of the vehicle officers discovered two large machete style knives.
The three occupants were all arrested and taken to custody, where officers discovered a quantity of Class A drugs during further searches.
The trio, a 46-year-old man from Eccles and two teenage boys (age 14 and 15) from Salford, have all been arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply Class A drugs and possession of a bladed article in a public place.
All three remain in police custody where they are assisting officers with their enquiries.
Detective Inspector John O’Driscoll, of the Eastern Crime Hub, said: “This is a great result which has resulted in the removal of a number of dangerous weapons and illegal drugs from the streets of Cheshire.
“The corrosive effect of illegal drugs on communities cannot be understated. Behind every single drug deal there is vulnerability and misery and we are committed to tackling the problem and targeting those involved."
