Knife in underpants leads police to more crimes

Police uncovered a full house of offending when they caught a man attempting to conceal a knife in his underpants.

Officers from the Force’s Knife Crime Team pulled over a Volkswagen Polo on Tuesday 9 May at around 7:40 pm in Aspley Lane.

The driver was searched and a lock knife was found hidden in his underpants.

The 22-year-old was arrested for possession of a bladed article and taken to Radford Road Custody Suite.

It was then revealed that he was wanted in connection with a house burglary in Long Eaton where around £5,000 was stolen and criminal damage where a car had been smashed with a golf club. He was arrested for both of these offences.

A warrant was then executed at his property in Abercarn Close in Bulwell where a large quantity of cash and a quantity of suspected Class A drugs were seized.

A high-value electric bike was also removed from the property. He was then arrested for possession with intent to supply Class A drugs.

Sergeant Matthew Daley said:

“This incident is a prime example of how far officers will go. A routine car check revealed a host of criminal activity, and we pursued each avenue to arrest the suspect on four occasions.”

Nottinghamshire Police is shining a light on the work being done to crack down on knife crime throughout this week, as part of the national campaign Operation Sceptre.
