Arrests after drugs raid recovers crack, cash and equipment

Two men were arrested and a significant quantity of suspected class A drugs recovered during a police raid.

Officers raided a property in Edinburgh Walk, Worksop, at around 4.40pm on Thursday after responding to community intelligence.

Inside they found what is believed to be crack-cocaine, a large quantity of cash and various items of drug paraphernalia.

Two men, aged 31 and 26, were arrested on suspicion of possessing class A drugs with intent to supply and remain in police custody.

Inspector Neil Bellamy, district commander for Bassetlaw, said: “Illegal drugs cause considerable damage to often vulnerable people. They are a blight on our community and we are working every day to address the very reasonable concerns of local residents.

“The good news is that recent increases in officer numbers mean we now have more time to dedicate to intelligence gathering and the kind of proactive police enforcement action seen here. So if you are involved in the production or supply of illegal drugs we may know all about you and could pay you a visit in the near future.

“I would also like to encourage local residents to keep coming forward and reporting their concerns to us. We will listen, we will investigate and we will take action if and when we have sufficient evidence. You can contact us by calling 101 or by messaging us on social media.”
