Drugs raid in Sherwood nets suspected heroin, crack cocaine and other illegal substances

Nottingham City North Operation Reacher and the Neighbourhood Policing Team executed a warrant on Frobisher Gardens in Sherwood early yesterday morning.


The force said it was a result of numerous complaints of ongoing drug dealing, from a flat at that location.

A spokesperson for Nottinghamshire Police said:

‘Entry was gained and significant amounts of suspected heroin, that was in large rocks ready to be cut in to 0.1g and 0.2g deals, was seized.

‘As well as this smaller rocks of suspected crack cocaine, and amounts of cannabis and suspected Mamba for personal use, were also seized.

‘A 53-year-old male and 42-year-old female will be questioned in relation to drug supply offences.

‘Heroin sells on the street for £10 for 0.1 gram and £20 for 0.2 grams, and addicts can smoke, snort or inject that amount numerous times a day.

‘This expensive addiction has a huge knock-on effect, and leads to increased thefts and other crimes, to pay for the drug.

‘It also endangers the lives of every user, who do not know, if or what substances their heroin may have been cut with.

‘The team have conducted a number of warrants, at other properties in the vicinity of that street over the summer months in 2020, but the problems continues.

‘The City North team encourage anyone in that area, or any other area affected by drug dealing, to provide the police with information, that will help us continue to tackle the issues in your neighbourhood.’
