Early morning raid in The Meadows finds ‘bulk stash of heroin and cocaine’

Police executed an early morning warrant at an address in the Meadows and found a bulk stash of suspected heroin and crack cocaine.

Officers forced entry at a property in Phoenix Close on September 15 following intelligence that the house was being used to store and deal Class A drugs.

The back door of the property was forced, and a male attempted to flee but was detained.

On initial searches one suspect was found to be in possession of two ‘deals’ of suspected crack cocaine. The other suspect was in possession of around £400 in cash.

A detailed search of the flat led to the recovery of 10 further individual ‘deals’ suspected to be crack cocaine.

Officers also found a large quantity of powder and solid material suspected to be heroin and crack cocaine.

The ‘bulk’ material weighed approximately 10 grams – equivalent to 100 individual street deals. Electronic scales with suspected drug residue were also recovered.

A male and female were arrested on possession with intent to supply Class A drugs and released on police bail.

Sgt Tim Register, from the City South Operation Reacher team, said: “This was a great result which has taken a large amount of suspected heroin and crack cocaine off the streets of Nottingham.

“These drugs also fuel other crime which includes addicts turning to shoplifting and burglary to feed their habits. They will also use the parks and playgrounds to shoot up, making them an undesirable place for families and their children.

“No one should have to live next to drug dealers and the unruly behaviour and anti-social behaviour that can come with it. If you deal drugs in Nottingham and think you can get away with it, then think again.

“Operation Reacher won’t be knocking on your door – we will be coming through it.”

Neighbourhood Inspector Karl Thomas, who covers the Meadows, said: “Drugs are a massive blight on the communities we serve.

“The Meadows is a lovely place to live, and we don’t want it spoilt by a few bad apples.

“This latest result shows how much we value community intelligence and will act on your concerns. Targeting drug dealers is one of our beat priorities in the Meadows and we won’t stop until drug dealers get the message – we don’t want you here.”

If you suspect someone of dealing drugs in your community then please call Nottinghamshire Police on 101.
