Two men from Blackburn who fled a car on foot were arrested near the Congleton Link Road on suspicion of using a false number plate.
At around 4.10pm on 11th September (Friday), officers executed a pre-emptive stop on a black Vauxhall Vectra on the A34 towards Congleton.
A Cheshire Police spokesperson told Nub News: "The occupants fled the car on foot and a search of the area was conducted, aided by a police drone and the dog unit."
Two men from Blackburn, aged 39 and 18, were subsequently arrested on suspicion of using a false number plate.
The 39-year-old was also arrested on suspicion of theft from a motor vehicle, while the 18-year-old was arrested on suspicion of going equipped for theft.
They have both been released on conditional bail pending further enquiries.
