Police arrested five people after a large bag of cannabis was thrown from a flat window.
Officers were called to Thomas Close, St Ann’s, Nottingham, at around 2.10pm on Tuesday (6 June) following reports of a disturbance.
A bag full of the Class B drug was dropped out of a window into the garden when police arrived at the scene.
Two women, aged 27 and 54, two men, aged 21 and 26, as well as a 15-year-old boy, were arrested at the scene on suspicion of possession with intent to supply cannabis.
Inspector Steve Dalby, neighbourhood policing inspector for St Ann’s, said:
“This is a good example of how we can be called to an incident and have to respond quickly to a very different set of circumstances.
“It is always good news when we can take drugs off the streets and destroy them.
“The supply of drugs can have a devastating impact on our neighbourhoods and brings with it violence, antisocial behaviour and exploitation. It also funds other crimes, including shop theft, which in turn has a negative impact on local businesses.
“I want to encourage anyone who believes criminal activity is taking place in their area or ever notices anything suspicious to please get in touch with us and report it – your information can sometimes be the final piece of evidence we need in an investigation.
“This remains an ongoing investigation and anyone with any information should call police on 101, quoting incident number 395 of 6 June 2023, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.”
