During a later search of a local address, officers also found a badly neglected dog and took it for treatment at a local charity.

Detective Sergeant Beth Sheard, of Nottinghamshire Police: “This was a great result that allowed us to take a significant quantity of illegal drugs off the streets. As an added bonus, this incident also led us to a distressed animal that is now getting the love and care it needs.”
