A drugs warrant led to two burglary suspects being arrested.
Officers had received a report of padlocks being damaged and power tools being taken during a burglary in Stephens Road, Sneinton, overnight between Tuesday and Wednesday (22 and 23 February 2022).
On Wednesday morning, in a separate proactive operation, a team consisting of neighbourhood policing and Operation Reacher officers descended on a property in Trent Road, Sneinton, to conduct a warrant following intelligence around drugs activity.
During the warrant, officers recovered a quantity of suspected class A drugs and also discovered a number of power tools, which officers believe to have been related to the burglary in Stephens Road.
A 17-year-old boy and a 59-year-old man were then arrested on suspicion of burglary and possession with intent to supply class A drugs. They were subsequently released under investigation pending further enquiries.
Sergeant Richard Hunter, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “This was a great bit of work from officers who not only seized a significant quantity of drugs, but also recovered important items which we believe were stolen in a burglary that had been reported to us shortly before this warrant. They have since been returned.
“This just goes to show how beneficial this proactive work can be. By acting on intelligence, we have made progress and arrests as part of not one but two investigations.
“This is great news for the community and this should also reassure them that we are committed to acting on their information and stamping out criminal activity in the area. We would continue to urge people to get in touch via 101 or their local neighbourhood or Operation Reacher teams if they suspect criminal activity is happening in their area.
“The two men have been released under investigation our enquiries continue.”
