Cannabis and alleged drug dealing discovered in West Bridgford house raid

Three men have been arrested after police teams worked together to uncover a cannabis grow and suspected drug dealing.

Officers from the Rushcliffe Operation Reacher Team and Rushcliffe North Neighbourhood Policing Team seized the drugs after they spotted a damaged vehicle outside a property they were observing in Boxley Drive, West Bridgford.

Three suspects were arrested when they were spotted entering and leaving the house and behaving suspiciously on 29 December 2022.

Officers then carried out a search of the property and discovered cropped cannabis plants and a number of new plants. They also found suspected Class A drugs, drug equipment and cash.

A search of another address in Stoke Bardolph uncovered another cannabis grow and thousands of pounds in cash.

Rob Lawton, Neighbourhood Policing Inspector for Rushcliffe, said: “This was a great example of police teams working together.

“Taking suspected Class A drugs off the streets is always a great result and I am pleased we have made three arrests.”
