Arrest and drugs seized in Eastwood raid

Ongoing efforts to disrupt drug dealing and target those suspected to be supplying drugs were highlighted during a coordinated police operation which resulted in an arrest and seizures.

Officers seized bags of cannabis, along with cash and mobile phones, after executing a Misuse of Drugs Act warrant at a flat in Manor Road, Eastwood.

The positive action, which involved members of the Broxtowe County Operation Reacher and neighbourhood policing team, was carried out as part of an ongoing coordinated campaign to crack down on drug-related crime and to protect the local community from the harm caused by the illegal drug trade.

“Proactive focused operations such as this one are evidence of our relentless determination to take action against those making a business from the supply of drugs in our communities.

“We will continue to take positive action to keep people safe by making arrests and seizing drugs which will undoubtedly have a disruptive and negative impact on the activities of drug dealers.

“We’re sending a clear message to these people that we will not tolerate this sort of criminality and we will use all powers at our disposal to prevent them from profiting from other people’s misery.

“The fight against drug dealing is a local crime priority for Broxtowe due to the issues this brings with it; theft, antisocial behaviour and exploitation of vulnerable people.

“I’d like to reassure the public we will continue to do everything in our power to make Eastwood, and the wider Broxtowe borough, a hostile environment for people intent on bringing crime to our communities.

“I would urge members of the public to join us in our efforts to remove drug dealers from our streets and enable us to take appropriate action by reporting any suspicions they have to us by calling Nottinghamshire Police on 101 or 999 in an emergency.

Alternatively, you can call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111, where information can be given anonymously.”

A 24-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply a Class B drug after the warrant was carried out on Friday (13 January 2023). Rooms were searched and items were seized after officers forced entry.

The suspect was subsequently released on conditional bail while officers continue with their inquiries.
