Sergeant Tim Register, who leads the city south Operation Reacher team, said: “This is a really positive find by our team. Acting on intelligence, they have been able to take a quantity of class A and B drugs, as well as illicit cash, off Nottinghamshire’s streets.

“Drugs activity, whilst illegal in its own right, can also very often indicate wider serious organised criminality. We are committed and it is our duty to uncover and intercept this type of crime, and it is why we take such robust action when we receive any information.

“We have interviewed a man in connection with this discovery and our enquiries are ongoing.

“We would continue to urge anyone with information or concerns about criminal activity in their area to get in touch on 101. Local officers and dedicated teams, such as the Operation Reacher team, are there to look at this information, act on what the community is telling them and tackle the issues that matter most to them.”
