Bulwell: Car without lights leads police to Class A drugs haul

A car seen driving without its lights on led to police seizing drugs and arresting two people.

Response officers were travelling through Bulwell when they spotted a moving vehicle with its headlights off.

This prompted police to pull the car over in nearby Norwich Gardens, around 9.55pm on Saturday (20 April).

After approaching the vehicle and looking inside, officers spotted quantities of Class A drugs on the back seat.

Following this sighting, they carried out a further search of the vehicle.

This resulted in more suspected Class A drugs, large quantities of cash and multiple mobile phones being seized.

Two suspects – a 17-year-old boy and 17-year-old girl – were arrested on suspicion of possessing with intent to supply Class A drugs.

Inspector Gavin Berry, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “This double arrest provided a great example of the importance of our officers being out on the roads.

“By being out in the community, our response colleagues were able to spot a car driving without its lights on, which unbeknownst to them at the time, had drugs on board.

“Again, this was uncovered thanks to the awareness of the officers in quickly scanning the car as they approached and spotting Class A drugs on the back seat.

“Anything we can do as a force to take drugs off our streets is undoubtedly a positive thing, so the seizure of these items and the arrests that followed represented a good result.”
