Large amounts of cocaine seized in Meadows raid

A suspected cocaine and cannabis dealer has been remanded in custody following a police car stop.

Officers were travelling through Hucknall when they noticed a vehicle that aroused their suspicions.

Believing it could be linked to drug activity, officers searched the car when it came to a stop in Brookside.

Quantities of cannabis and cash were found during the stop, which happened around 7.25pm on Tuesday (14 May).

A property in The Meadows was then searched off the back of this discovery, which resulted in the seizure of large amounts of cocaine.

More cannabis, cash, and weighing scales were also found at the address.

Jermaine Griffith was subsequently charged with possessing with intent to supply Class A and B drugs.

The 38-year-old was also charged with acquiring/using/possessing criminal property.

Griffith, of Pitcairn Close, The Meadows, appeared at Nottingham Magistrates’ Court on Thursday (16 May).

He will now remain in custody until he next appears at Nottingham Crown Court on 13 June 2024.

Detective Inspector Simon Harrison, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “Drugs can have a devastating impact on communities and literally ruin the lives of everyone they touch.

“That’s why we will always do everything in our power to put anyone we suspect of dealing these substances before the courts.

“We’re pleased to have been able to take large quantities of Class A and B drugs out of circulation in this instance and remove them from where they can cause harm to the community.”
