Cannabis plants recovered in Nottinghamshire raid

Nottinghamshire Police’s commitment to listening to people’s concerns and then taking positive action to tackle them was again in evidence after officers discovered and dismantled a cannabis grow.

Police executed a Misuse of Drugs Act warrant following suspicions raised about an address in Tiree Close, Trowell.

The enforcement action was carried out as part of ongoing work and operational activity to crack down on drug-related crime in the Broxtowe borough.

Around 30 plants were seized from the garage of a house on Wednesday morning and a suspect will be voluntarily interviewed in due course over the grow as enquiries continue.

Neighbourhood policing inspector Mike Ebbins said: “This enforcement activity shows how we are listening to concerns raised by our local communities and taking robust action to crack down on the illegal drug trade which causes so much misery to people’s lives.

“I want to reassure people that we will continue to act on feedback and intelligence we receive from members of the community as well as working closely with our partners to reduce criminality even further.

“We know the cultivation of cannabis can often be linked to wider criminality including the exploitation of vulnerable adults and children. We are determined to do all we can to disrupt this type of activity and continue to tackle the issues that our communities have told us matter most to them. “

If you have suspicions about criminal activity in the area where you live then please call Nottinghamshire Police on 101. Alternatively you can call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

Young people can also pass on information about crime completely anonymously, using a secure online form, through the youth service Fearless – which is a part of Crimestoppers.

The Fearless website offers young people non-judgemental advice so they can make informed decisions about reporting crime. The service also engages with and educates young people about the consequences of their choices around crime.
