Police arrested two people when they found a bin bag full of suspected mamba after executing a warrant at an address in Clifton.
Officers attended an address in Porter Close at around 2:45 pm on Wednesday 17 May.
A search of the property took place and a white bin bag containing a large quantity of vegetable matter suspected to be mamba was recovered in the lounge.
A man, aged 43, and a woman, aged 48, were arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply a Class B drug.
Neighbourhood Inspector Stephen Dalby said:
“Mamba is a drug that can cause users to fall into a ‘zombified’ state and can be extremely dangerous. It also a drug that is relatively cheap to buy.
“Acting on intelligence, officers from the Clifton neighbourhood team executed a warrant at the address in Clifton and came across a large quantity of what we believe is mamba.
“Drugs can be the catalyst for many other crimes such as violence, shoplifting, robbery, and burglary and therefore any intelligence around those dealing drugs we will act upon promptly as we did on Wednesday.
“This warrant means we have now taken a large amount of suspected mamba off the streets of Nottingham.”
Anyone with information about drug dealing taking place in their area is urged to call 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
