Arrest inside a Nottingham restaurant leads to drugs discovery

A proactive policing operation led to the seizure of drugs and the arrest of a wanted man.

Police attended a restaurant in Woodborough Road, Mapperley, at around 4.05pm on Tuesday (2 August), following calls that a known suspect could be inside.

After receiving intelligence that linked the suspect to a number of serious alleged offences in the region, officers made their move and detained him at the scene.

A 25-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of causing grievous bodily harm, obstructing police, and possession of a bladed article, while he was also wanted on re-call to prison.

A search was then carried out at a house in Foxhill Road East, Carlton, which resulted in a quantity of cash and suspected cocaine being seized from inside.

Following the discovery, the man was further arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply Class A drugs.

A 22-year-old woman was also arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply Class A drugs.

Both remain in police custody.

Detective Sergeant James Hirst, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “Thanks to the excellent persistence shown by officers in this case, we have been able to take some dangerous drugs off our streets and out of harm’s way, while also arresting a suspect wanted in connection with a number of serious offences.

“As a force, we’re absolutely committed to making our communities safer through conscientious policing and will always act on any intelligence we receive to help us do exactly that.

“We have now arrested two suspects in connection with this investigation but would ask anyone who has any information that could further assist our enquiries to call the police on 101, quoting incident 121 of 2 August 2022, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.”
