Four warrants were executed in the Carlton-in-Lindrick and Langold areas of Bassetlaw as part of an ongoing investigation relating to the importation and supply of illegal drugs.
The enforcement activity involved a number of proactive police teams including the Worksop criminal investigation department (CID), Bassetlaw Operation Reacher and Worksop neighbourhood policing teams, digital forensic teams, and Nottinghamshire Police’s tactical support group.
A 38-year-old man and a 34-year-old woman were detained on suspicion of being concerned in the supply of Class A and B drugs.
A 39-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of suspicion of being concerned in the supply of Class A drugs.
The enforcement activity took place on Thursday (9 November 2023).
Detective Inspector Luke Todd, of Nottinghamshire Police, said:
“Drugs can have an incredibly harmful impact on people’s lives and on communities as a whole as they often have a knock-on effect of associated violence and criminality.
“I’d like to reassure the public that we are determined to disrupt the illegal supply of drugs on our streets and to keep our communities safe. As our ongoing enforcement activity demonstrates, we won’t hesitate to take robust action to target and disrupt those suspected to be involved in this type of crime.”
Inspector Hayley Crawford, District Commander for Bassetlaw, added:
“The supply of drugs and the harm they can cause to vulnerable people is a priority for my officers and we remain committed to working with our partners to target offenders and disrupt criminal activity.
“As these warrants show, we will always do all we can to protect local people and proactively root out and catch those who choose to sell harmful substances on our streets.
“It’s essential that our local communities continue to tell us about the issues in their areas – whether this relates to suspected drug offences, or other related criminal activity.
“If you have concerns about drug-related activity in your area I’d urge you to come forward and talk to us in confidence.”
