Three People Arrested For Planning Illegal Rave

Three people have been arrested for allegedly organising an illegal rave in the UK at the weekend.

The arrests relate to a planned gathering which was due to take place near Rugeley on the weekend just gone, June 27 and 28.

The men were arrested on suspicion of conspiring to cause a public nuisance as police investigate the organisation of illegal raves in Staffordshire.

A 21-year-old man from Darlaston, a 24-year-old man from Rugeley and a Smethwick man, aged 28, were all arrested.

The younger man was released on conditional bail with a curfew imposed and the other two were held in police custody for questioning.

The 24-year-old has since been released on conditional bail with a curfew imposed.

Chief Superintendent Carl Ratcliffe, from Staffordshire Police, said: “The three arrests this weekend hopefully demonstrate that we will take action against those suspected of illegal activity.

“These events are also in clear breach of the current coronavirus regulations and put everyone at risk.”
