TWO Evesham businesses were subject to police checks as part of a crackdown to snare foreign national offenders.

West Mercia Police, along with immigration officials, attended the car washes on the High Street and Avon Street at about 2pm yesterday afternoon (Tuesday) as part of a pre-planned operation.

However, there were no arrests made.
