Arrests on drug offences after car stopped in St Ann’s

Response officers arrested two suspected drug dealers after stopping a car.

Police were patrolling the St Ann’s area at around 2.15am on Sunday (21 May) when they spotted a car being driven erratically.

After following the vehicle for a short period, officers stopped the car in Richmond Avenue, St Ann’s.

A search was then carried out within, which led to large quantities of cannabis being discovered, as well as weighing scales and deal bags.

Both people inside the car, a 21-year-old man and a 19-year-old woman, were arrested at the scene on suspicion of possession with intent to supply Class B drugs.

The man, who was driving the car, also failed a roadside drug swipe and was further arrested on suspicion of driving a motor vehicle with a proportion of a specified controlled drug above the specified limit.

Following the double arrest, further searches were carried out of two properties, which led to the seizure of more cannabis, cash, and burner phones.

PC Jacob Careless, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “This was a great example of the impact police patrols can have at spotting suspected criminal activity that may have otherwise slipped through the cracks.

“As a direct result of this stop, we were able to seize large quantities of cannabis and arrest two people suspected of being involved in the supply of drugs.

“Nottinghamshire Police will not tolerate drug activity in our communities and will always look to take action against anyone found guilty of selling drugs on our streets.

“We’d urge anyone who has any information relating to potential drug activity in their area to always report it either to the police via 101, or by calling Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.”
