McDonald’s drive-thru closed while police arrested suspected drug dealers

Two suspected drug dealers were arrested in a McDonald’s drive-thru.

Officers swooped on a black Ford Focus after receiving intelligence that it had been involved in drug dealing.

An unmarked police vehicle followed the Focus into a McDonald’s drive-thru, in Nuthall Road, Bobbers Mill, where it was boxed in by a second police car.

The drive-thru had to be closed temporarily during the operation, which took place at 9.40pm on Monday (22 April).

A grinder containing a bag of white powder – suspected to be crack cocaine – was found inside the car, along with cannabis, digital scales, two handsets and what appeared to be a “dealer’s list”.

A small hunting knife was also located in the glove box and a quantity of cash was seized along with two smartphones.

Two people inside the car – a 31-year-old man and 51-year-old woman – were arrested on suspicion of possession of a bladed article, being concerned in the supply of Class A drugs and possession with intent to supply Class B drugs.

They have been bailed with conditions pending further investigation work.

PC James Hooper, of Nottinghamshire Police, said:

“Both suspects co-operated during the arrests, although the male suspect did complain of having his food spoilt.

“We may have ruined his evening but drugs and weapons destroy lives and that is why we will continue in our mission to drive crime out of Nottingham.

“As part of this effort, we will continue to carry out proactive patrols to disrupt the activity of local dealers and reduce the associated risk of violent crime.”
