‘Large amount’ of mamba discovered in Sneinton police raid

A police drugs warrant led to a 54-year-old man being charged in relation to the production and supply of mamba.

Officers acting on intelligence searched a flat in Manvers Street, Sneinton, and recovered a large amount of synthetic cannabinoids, also known as Mamba.

Three men and a woman were arrested at the scene following the operation at around 7.20am on 3 May.

One of the men has since been charged with possession with intent to supply synthetic cannabinoids.

He will next appear at Nottingham Crown court on 16 June 2021 having appeared at Nottingham Magistrates’ Court on 19 May 2021.

The other three people have been released under investigation.

Detective Sergeant Louise Bradford, of Nottinghamshire’s criminal investigation department, said: “The illicit use of substances like mamba is something that we are continuously cracking down on as it leads to so many health concerns and issues for the local community never mind fueling other offences like shop thefts.

“We’ve been carrying out lots of enquiries in relation to those who supply synthetic cannabinoids and officers have been working around the clock since the Manvers Street warrant took place carrying out various enquiries. This has now led to a man being charged.

“We actively work on pieces of intelligence and information gathered from members of the public so we encourage people to report information to us, no matter how small, if they suspect someone to be involved in drug supply and production.”
