Cannabis and cash fund after van stopped in Mansfield

Two suspected drug dealers were arrested after officers pulled over a van that had been reported stolen.

Officers spotted the vehicle in Mansfield at around 11.40 am on Wednesday and followed it for a short distance into Babworth Court.

After detaining the driver and passenger they discovered many young cannabis plants and a large amount of cash.

Two men, aged 38 and 21, were arrested on suspicion of possessing Class B drugs with intent to supply and theft of a motor vehicle.

The older man was also held on suspicion of driving without a licence and driving without insurance.

Investigations are ongoing and the men remain in police custody. The drugs will now be destroyed.

PC Joshua Gibbons, of Nottinghamshire Police, said:

“This vehicle was stopped because it had been reported as stolen, but the large quantity of illegal drugs we found in the back was certainly an added bonus.”
